I stumbled on these over the winter.  Aren’t they nice?

“For 25 years Elizabeth Lennie has worked as an actress in theatre, film and television while developing a painting practice and raising 3 daughters in mid-town Toronto with husband performer/writer/teacher Mike Kirby. Her liquid landscapes are both abstract and figurative and explore the memory myth of summer. The medium is oil paint on canvas or board, with layered washes, thicker impasto, and the occasional graphite text. The archetypes surrounded by water explore notions of self within the resonance of shared memory. E. Lennie’s paintings are featured regularly in the media and are collected in Canada, the US, the UK and Japan.”

The Currier & Ives Cookie Tray

When I was a child my mom had a cheap metal cookie tray with this image painted on it.  No other picture has done more to shape my idea of an idealized Christmas.
