Christmas in Wachapreague

Christmas in Wachapreague
Oil on canvas, 10x10

Every holiday season, the Wachapreague Volunteer Fire Department strings Christmas lights over Main Street. 

After a quiet, lazy, lovely Christmas morning, and a fun Christmas afternoon working on a cowscape, I went over to Main Street and painted as the sun went down. I got the street and buildings painted in, then waited for the lights to go on. As I waited, I heard a dog puffing, and looked around, and there was Abby, pulling at the end of the leash, with Peter at the other end. 

Aside from them, two cars went by, one group of people walked by, and a dad and his two kids rode their bikes past me. 

And everyone said Merry Christmas!
