It’s snowing in Atlanta, making it a White Christmas… what should I do?
My latest painting: “A Winter’s Ride.” I was listening to John Hiatt’s “Same Old Man” CD and heard this verse:
Gray and chalky, like my granddaddy’s skin
The sky was cold and lonely and closing in
All the trees looked like stubble on Winter’s chin
And I think I’ll ride my pony.”
This painting is what I ended up with.

“Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it ‘white.’”
— Bing Crosby
