“Sunlight is painting.”     – Nathaniel Hawthorne


I look forward to the change of season, especially the relaxed colors of winter and the exposed structure of all things normally hidden in foliage. Some plants, though, take advantage of winter to show off, like these fiery red winterberries, a type of holly. I paint these guys every year. Plus Lee cuts sprigs from our shrubs and places them in small vases around the house to brighten our spirits throughout the holidays. Their vivid display amid winter’s starkness is a reminder of God’s invitation to experience his grace during dark times in our lives.
