Artist's Description

Watercolor and gouache on 300 lb Arches paper

A winter scene on Woodward Avenue. I’m a Detroit expat living in France. More often than not, I’m dreaming of my hometown and filled with nostalgia. This scene is my Christmas card of 2014, and the words of Kim Gannon seem so appropriate:

“I’m dreaming tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it’s a long road back
I promise you
I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree
Christmas eve will find you
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams”

French translation:

Je rêve ce soir à ce lieu que j’aime
Plus qu’à l’accoutumée
Et malgré ce long chemin
Je te promets
Je serai de retour pour Noël
Compte sur moi
Pourvu qu’il y ait de la neige et du houx
Et des cadeaux sous le sapin
Le réveillon de Noël arrivera
Où l’amour scintille
Je serai de retour pour Noël
Si seulement dans mes rêves
