Alrighty folks, welcome to the requisite end of year newsletter. The recap of all the wonderful things I’ve done in the past 12 months. I dare you to keep up as I recreate the thrills of my masked up grocery runs, my zoom calls, my neighborhood dog walks and hours spent watching cable news. Yes it’s been quite a ride. An indoor virtual ride. Recap: done.
At least it left time for a lot of art making!

So please enjoy some images of work I’ve created hanging in pretty spaces while I fill white space with holiday musings…

As a kid (and for much of my adulthood) I would host an annual Holiday Film Festival for a party of one, moi. White Christmas, Holiday Inn, Christmas in Connecticut, It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story were required viewing, while The Bells of St. Mary, The Bishop’s Wife, and the scene from Meet Me in St. Louis where Judy Garland tears our hearts out singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” were on standby, if time allowed.

Looking back, I wonder how I managed this before there were DVRs and VCRs. I was literally chained to my TV Guide. (A TV guide, for you “younguns”, was a printed booklet that arrived in the Sunday paper with a listing and schedule of all the shows on that week. I used to memorize the prime time line-up and recite it to my family at the dinner table. How proud they must’ve been.)

And I know this will not be a popular opinion, but It’s a Wonderful Life was only on the list because it was constantly airing, making it unavoidable. Not my favorite. Used to get bored after the Buffalo Girls scene. White Christmas also had a saggy middle issue, but I felt that the boffo opening, dynamite ending and swell Irving Berlin musical numbers more than made up for “Mandy”.

Hopefully you can now picture my artwork in your own pretty space. Or perhaps I’ve just inspired you to buy a new hallway table…

If you're a consumer of Instagram or Facebook you can now buy many of my pieces directly from the apps! Because if you try to leave Facebook or Instagram bad things happen.

In Facebook there's a SHOP tab at the top of my Kathy Halper Art page. In Instagram, you will see a little shopping bag in lower left corner when an item in buy-able or click on the "View Shop" tab on my @kathyhalperpainter profile page.

And of course, visit my website for a thorough look.

I think that's about it for the corporate required sale-sy statements.

Thank you so much for reading my emails and even more so for telling me you ACTUALLY read my emails! I hope you have a safe, warm, loving holiday season. We are heading towards better days, that I am sure of.

Much love. From a distance.
