Merry Christmas

I belong to a fabulous book club. Our fearless leader brought us all together after our sons graduated from the same high school. While cheering on our guys at soccer games, or working together on committees, we had occasionally talked about what we were reading, but I didn't really know many of them well. Six-and-a-half years later, we've read and discussed some great books and have eaten some incredible meals, but most importantly, we share a very special friendship. So, at our holiday gift exchange earlier this month, I gave them each a print of this drawing.

While deciding what to draw for them earlier in the week, I found some gorgeous fresh mistletoe at Bunches in Los Gatos (I just adore that place and their shop duck, Pete). I tied it up with a bit of ribbon, cranked up the Christmas music and sat down to draw. (I usually can't draw with music playing, but I made an exception this time - Christmas music is pretty much a necessity when drawing mistletoe, wouldn't you agree?)

So, have yourself a merry little Christmas, pass the eggnog, and I'll see you after the holidays!
