SEASON'S GREETINGS

It doesn't seem long since I was posting this time last year and hear we are again. It has been a lean year on the blogging front for me, hampered by my technophobia and ennui, but I have managed to get a decent amount of painting done.

May I wish all readers and blogging friends a Very Merry Christmas/Yule.

Here we see a Christmas concert in the parkland of Trompenburg. The Margrave has been excited by news of a Turkish pavilion erected by Mr. Hamilton of Painshill in England and has decided to follow the new Rococo trend of Turquerie and install a similar edifice in his own garden, among a stand of Tradgardland firs (abies gruberii)  . A recent fall of snow had the gardeners clearing the area around the tent so the musicians didn't get chilly feet.
