“Christmas Eve” shows a woman in an evening gown standing near her grand piano as she gazes at a glowing Christmas tree across the room. It is an example of one of my early moves toward figuration after many years of abstract painting. I think the source of this image might be the distant memories of the many 1930’s & 40’s holiday movies I watched while growing up. (I can almost hear “Silent Night” playing in the background)
