I was reminded today of the book ornament that I painted for the Library of Congress (in Washington DC) Christmas tree. I had to look it up again. Wow! That was back in 2005. “Creativity Across America” was the theme. I painted a picture of the Sawtooth Mountains in beautiful Stanley Idaho.
Decorative painters from all over the United States were sent a blank book shaped wood cut-out. I think it was around 5x7. We were to paint something representing our State. Deb Malewski, a very talented designer organized the project. You can read more about it HERE.
Decorating the tree…
Isn’t it pretty? I really need to dig out my brushes and put them to better use.
