My Secret Santa Present (Miller side)

Every year for Christmas my family draws names to see who we will be assigned to gift giving. This year I am proud to announce that I am my mom's Secret Santa. Through out all my life she has asked for a landscape painting from me. When I was younger I was always busy drawing and painting what I wanted to paint and draw. Once college started I only did what my teachers told me. Technically I'm still mostly doing only what my teachers are doing but this past semester my teachers wants from me and my mom's wants from me finally aligned and here I have 12 landscape paintings, or "plein air" paintings I should say. Don't get me wrong though, I absolutely loved doing these paintings. As a class we would go out on sight to some of the most beautiful locations in the valley and up in the mountains and get our paints out and paint away. Some are definitely better than others, but I hope they all can be enjoyed by my mom for years to come. Merry Christmas Mom! I love you! ~Sarah

  1. Even though I give you a hard time about landscapes because I think they are boring. Some of these are quite beautiful.
