I love this beautiful little tree, it carries proudly its yellow leaves like some precious golden coins. All the trees around seem to make space for this little bold and wealthy tree.

Frost and ice have arrived, and even snow on some of the tallest mountain peaks. It is cosy to light candles and lanterns in the evening. Soon, it will be almost holidays for me (I’ll still have to work a little bit). I’m really looking forward to painting to my heart’s content. I’m planning to paint little decorative panels for all my little altars, probably cut-outs.
