"Do You See What I See?"

I was so encouraged after reading my friend, Cindy Adkins' free seminar, "Amazing Art Adventure" last night, I got out my paints and brushes, and painted this winter scene with one of my favorite Christmas carols in mind. I used acrylics on a piece of old roofing slate.

"Said the night wind to the little lamb,
"Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite,
With a tail as big as a kite."

"Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
"Do you hear what I hear?
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea,
With a voice as big as the sea."

For more information on this, and other free seminars, as well as all of Cindy's books, visit her website HERE. Until next time, thanks for visiting!

Hi Cindy,
your painting turned out so wonderful. You should illustrate children books. Very nice idea.
Best greetings, Johanna

This is really lovely. I really like the line that moves from the slope of the tree and follows the gaze of the snowman and leads the eye up to the star. You ought to make this into a card or a Christmas blog header.
