Gingerbread Wonderland

"Gingerbread Wonderland" original watercolor on 260lb Arches by Carrie Waller 5" x  7"
Hi Everyone,

I painted this as a gift for my in-laws this year.  My father-in-law likes my snow globe paintings and my mother-in-law does a Gingerbread Christmas tree so I combined both for a joint gift. 

This was so much fun to paint.  I just love painting snow globes.  I just picked up a few more to photograph.  I'm planning on starting my Christmas paintings now for next year, some how they always get put off until the last minute.  So maybe while there is still snow on the ground I can find a little more Christmas inspiration:)

I want to wish you all the best 2013!!!!  Be safe if you're traveling or on the roads tonight!

Carrie
