2017 Magic Tree

There was a new Magic Tree location this year in Columbia and this tree was bigger than any ever.
The old ones were still around the town but on Christmas Eve we braved the bitter cold and went out to see this one.   Bruce and I got out all bundled up and walked around to take pictures.   We parked where Dad and Arthur could stay in the car and still see the tree, they wanted nothing to do with bitter colds and winds.    This is a tradition no matter what I don't want to miss any year no matter the elements at the time.

For this year I used the January 15th sketch at  "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"  I had to rotate it to work with my vertical pictures.   I picked the background paper because of the snow on the ground and the fact that there was a light snow falling while we were there.   Plus on our way there we saw some deer in the trees by my brothers house, so this paper was perfect.

Here is the link to the challenge and the sketch at  "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"
