Winter Night -- Tribute to Vince Guaraldi

- by Renie Britenbucher

This week's theme: Winter Night

This week, those of us in the Northern Hemisphere will pass the longest night of the year. The Winter Solstice has been marked and celebrated by mankind farther back than any history written or oral, goes. In the cold, dark of the winter, we look forward to the warmth and light that will return as the cycle of the seasons, and of life, continue their inexorable revolution.


Art: Winter Night -- Tribute to Vince Guaraldi by Artist Renie Britenbucher
One of many paintings I've done in tribute to Vince Guaraldi, the great jazz composer who wrote the scores to the Charlie Brown Christmas, among man other things. I love the music and everytime I paint one of the winter scenes, I hear "Christmastime is Here", one of my favorite compositions of his. I was honored that his son, David Guaraldi, purchased one of the paintings in tribute to his father.
