The Day After Christmas by Julie Riker


I am finally getting around to posting about this plein air experience I had on the day after Christmas.
There is so much activity leading up to the holiday - things to make for family, friends, and clients.  I have always enjoyed the release of obligations once the holiday is over.  I woke up that morning to a blanket of fresh snow.  When the sun came out I knew what I had to do.  It was peaceful painting on this wooded path.  The only other person I saw was a woman walking her dog...probably enjoying the same sense of solitude that I was.
I wish everyone peace in the new year!
