December - Lights


December - Christmas Lights, originally uploaded by apple-pine.

We spent one December evening in the City of Palo Alto hiking through streets with wonderful Christmas and Hanukkah decorations and lights.

At first I decided that it will be evening without sketching - firstly because it was dark :) And secondly - because kids were trying to try every decoration with hands, feet and sometimes, teeth ;)

But then I saw this house and immediately proclaimed it as a house of my dreams - in short - my house. "MY" is something toddlers can relate to too easily. So immediately whole gang knew that this is "Nina's house" and everyone was ready to stop and spend some time discussing it. And I had a chance to draw it a little ;)

Needless to say that it should be a late evening scene with lots of dark silhouettes, lights in the windows, on the ledge and around the tree ;)
