Heading Home

- by Steve Hamlin

This week's theme: 'Tis the Season

Unless you've been living in a cave, you know that Christmas is this week. Some people dream of a white Christmas. The world muffled in snow in the quiet nights, the fun to be had during the crisp days - to those that love a winter day this is the perfect holiday. There are others that prefer their Christmas to be a little more like those that can be found in the Southern Hemisphere. Warmth and sun - perhaps on a beach, make for the perfect holiday celebration. Whether you prefer sun or snow it doesn't matter. This week we have both.

Art: Heading Home by Artist Steve Hamlin
I developed this painting from a photo I took at a sleigh rally in Stockbridge Mass. (home of the Norman Rockwell museum) in 2006.  The rally was held in an attractive setting and the weather was perfect, but the crowds, tents, and other trappings of the rally weren't what I envisioned for a background for my painting.  I scouted out a setting that was more like what I had in mind and created the composition you see here.
