This month’s featured gallery is Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season. The month of December brings us Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year’s Eve. It is a month of festivities and reflection. Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season appears once a year in month of December and is always a favorite. From now until the end of the year, we are going to take a few moments to catch up with some of the EBSQ artists that create for this season of celebration.

Growing up in Germany, we would usually have snow during the holidays, and snow meant building snowmen! To me it also meant being home by a warm fire and drawing pictures of snowmen and children sledding – to my heart’s content. Christmas was greatly anticipated , since I knew that I would receive more Art supplies and books. (My mother never repeated her mistake of giving me a doll one Christmas – I never gave it a second glance – I was only interested in the colored pencils and drawing paper!)
Now I live in SW Florida , and the temperatures often reach the eighties in December. None the less , when the end of November rolls around, I get the urge to paint snowmen, Santas and my beloved Poinsettias. The warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia and memories of wonderful family Christmas days are with me – as I paint and paint and paint! – Ulrike (Ricky) Martin
