Never in my wildest dreams did I think we’d have a white Christmas! What I love is that we’re at home and it feels like we’re away in a beautiful magical Christmas vacation place! These photos are from a beautiful winter walk in Mundy Park, BC here in Coquitlam. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family!
Really excited to be packaging up these paintings and sending them all over BC, Canada and to California, USA. And to all of you receiving artwork: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I feel so appreciated and supported that it means the world to me. Thank you!

‘God Keeps Opening Doors For Me’ 9″ x 12″ Mixed Media on Paper (c) Deb Chaney 2016
This little painting is part of my Little Gems Series of paintings, many of which were made in front of a workshop group to illustrate a concept or technique. Inspired by practice, they are a joy to create and share with you here! In particular, this little art piece is about hope; trusting God is there leading me the way to my dreams, to my right life, and opening all the right doors at the right time. Personally, I am developing my practice of trust.

To make this homemade advent calendar we used little 2″ x 3″ muslin bags , acrylic paints, stamps, stencils, and glitter! I put a little surprise gift for my daughter in each bag to count down the days before Christmas. Some gifts I put inside were; little earings, gum, bubble bath, candy cane, hair elastics, money, a miniature snow globe and a mascara (she’s 13 and loves makeup!). Thank you for our friend Sharon for coming over to help create these!
Had the most beautiful hike last week at Minnekhada Regional Park – before we got all this snowfall!
