Artist's Description

Last christmas was magic my four sisters decorated dads very old pear tree
It has been very good to us over the years and abundant in pears..we love that old tree..so thanks to dad for taking such good care of his garden..
My sister ordered this painting and it’s not finished yet…I’ll put the finished version up next week….or in the next 2 weeks at the most..
I wanted to show this ..especially to Kathi book who asked me what I was doing now.. what am I painting..heee!!..so this is it kathi..
I’m having so much fun with this ..though I’m getting to the stage now..where I have to be a little bit more careful with colour and what I put where.. and how
The pear tree had lanterns on it. yellow and green ones.and they had some shiny decorations too..that all has to be done..and all the details have to be put in too..
see the goats down the back..well- we all said that we should pool our money this year..and instead of buying presents for each other ..we should send the money to an overseas villiage so that the really poor folk could buy themselves some goats..there ARE people that are so poor that they have to eat grass and leaves..so this is a great idea.. with the small amount that we pool..they could probably buy a whole flock of goats!!
maybe christmas won’t be as festive this year without any presents ..but I’m sure that we will feel very good in our hearts that we’ve helped out practically where needed
Now margie only wanted girls in this painting..but I felt that peter my brother who always seems to Miss out..needed to be in the painting..
I’ve done him there as a christmas decoration..heee..hoping margie won’t notice..!! he has an axe in his hand..because he’s a fireman..hhha!!!
I will add to him and make him look more like a decoration..so when marg asks who or what is that I can say just a chrissy decoration..heee!!!
So this one should be finished soon It’s exciting!!
won’t be long now..just need to change and add some colours and put in all the details. By the way there must have been 16 of us under the tree that day..but marg just wants a certain number of people in this painting..
