Yesterday I went to the LaGrange Art Gallery. Downtown LaGrange is decorated so beautifully this time of year. I just love it. They have these cute old fashioned lamp posts every few feet down every block. I just couldn’t resist sketching one!
Fresh pine garland is such an elegant way to decorate and the scent can’t be beat. Just for the smell of it, I always buy a fresh pine wreath every year.
Evergreens are used this time of year to symbolize everlasting life, since the evergreen is a conifer and does not loose it’s leaves (needles) in the winter. It is forever green. This same principle is attributed to Christ, who came on Christmas to give us everlasting life, even after our life here on Earth is done.
Elegant and beautiful.
Yesterday’s sketch was done with Winsor & Newton travel watercolors and a Micron pen. D= date, T= time, C= weather conditions, and A= area or location of subject.
