Growing Up on the Hudson

My sisters and I grew up in Malden on Hudson. Our house overlooked the Hudson River. I painted 3 identical pictures of our childhood house, and gave them to my sisters and myself for Christmas. The house is for sale with many changes from when we grew up, but this is what it looked like when I lived there.

Merry Christmas

I painted this painting for this year's Christmas card. I used Tiny Prints to build a card with this painting on the front. They printed them for me and it came out very nice. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone.
