Christmas Dingy - December 8, 2009

“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
e. e. cummings

Christmas Dingy

5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Ink

This one was purely for fun! Santa needed a little help getting toys from the Christmas Ship to the kids on the island. Snowman was nice enough to offer to take the dingy over and deliver the toys. (Santa has a multitude of toy delivery methods that he wants to try out, since the reindeer wages keep going up every year.) Never forget how much fun it is to play outside the box now and then!

About e. e. cummings

The writer who became known as e. e. cummings was an experimental poet whose idiosyncratic typography complements the music of his poetry; he published more than 900 poems, two novels, and four plays. He was also an accomplished painter. He was born in Massachusetts in 1894 and entered the ambulance corps in World War I but ended up in a detention camp after expressing his pacifist views. He died in 1962. “In Just-” was his most famous poem.
