|"Kugels" 6x6 original watercolor on 260lb Arches by Carrie Waller|
Here is my newest painting "Kugels" 6x6. When Brian and I were living in Germany I started collecting kugesl. Kugels is the German word for ball or sphere and are the ancestors to the traditional glass Christmas ornament. They're blown, thick, glass with many colors. The colors aren't painted but melted into the batch of molten glass. They are beautiful and I absolutely love them.
I like this painting because it can be out year long, it's abstract and colorful enough to not be classified as a Christmas painting.
I will have a Friday feature up this week. Last week I was running behind and was going to post it when I got home from dropping kids off at school and running a few errands. By that time I had heard the news from Connecticut, and it just had me reeling. I pray for the families of the victims today and I pray for all those Mom's and Dad's that had to make a brave journey to school today to drop off their precious cargo. I held it together until I saw the flag at half staff. Christmas break can't get here soon enough.
