Lemon Tree

We just had another 12" of snow this past weekend. Looks like we're in for a lonnng winter! The kids have been asking relentlessly for me to set up the Christmas tree for them. I finally put it up yesterday, and after stringing up the lights, they started decorating the family tree. (I have the pretty "mommy" tree with the pretty ornaments that goes upstairs in the foyer.) Since we decorate for Christmas so early, we have fake trees. (My first job out of college was also working as an insurance adjuster, so real trees kind of freak me out with all the fires that get started from them.) However... I want to get a "real" tabletop tree this year for our main living space. I love the smell, and the imperfectness of a real tree.

Anyhow, speaking of trees, here's my latest in the shop. It's not Christmassy, but I do have fruit ornaments for my real tree, and for some reason, this painting reminds me a little of Christmas. Maybe subconsciously I want to go somewhere warm for Christmas!
