The Night Before Christmas by Diane Schuster

Canvas Prints

$71.50


An acrylic painting depicting 2 deer on the front snowy lawn of a farm on the night before Christmas!
When I painted this my goal was to take a local landmark a place on the historic register called “The Woods House” and paint it as it would have been in it’s heyday at Christmas. This is my rendition of that.
The Woods House is located in Eagle Point on Highway 62, in Southern Oregon.

I’m a 65 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
