Christmas Cards

Christmas Cards

Each year I paint a new winter scene to use for a Christmas card. Although it doesn’t snow that often in this part of Hampshire, when it does I’ll be out with my camera catching the moment before it all melts, which is usually quite quickly!

Cards are available individually cellophane wrapped with the greeting:
Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes for the New Year
