Christmas Day Give or Take a Week
After the giant Sequoias were established as a National Park in 1890, Congress also designated the “General Grant” tree as the nation’s Christmas tree. How appropriate with the cinnamon-red bark and the “Christmas” green foliage against a backdrop of “snow-white” snow.
As the “General Grant” tree doesn’t have a very good cave, this one was created from imagination. This mountain man needs to find shelter, peace and warmth on Christmas day. He has unloaded his horse, gathered wood, made a fire and has rigged up a makeshift cooking stick for his meal of local game bird. He has even taken the time to cut down a small tree and decorate it with his meager possessions – a locket, a pocket watch, an Indian necklace and a mirror. As his calendar may not be accurate, this is “Christmas Day, Give or Take a Week.”
Bev Doolittle (born February 10, 1947) is an American artist working mainly in watercolor paints. She creates paintings of the American West that feature themes of Native American life, wild animals, horses, and landscapes.
Doolittle has become a popular artist in the United States, and her original paintings and prints are collected widely by those interested in the Western themes she portrays. Realistic Western art has conventionally been dominated by oil painting, and Doolittle was instrumental in bringing watercolors into the genre, and garnering respect for this medium from collectors of Western art.
From California, Bev Doolittle is a painter of western wilderness subjects whose subjects come from traveling the western United States and living outdoors for first-hand observation. She is noted for her careful attention to realistic detail of her wide-ranging western subjects including cowboys, Indians, horses and natural landscape. She has also built a career by having great success with the print market beginning in 1979 when Greenwich Workshop did a limited edition of 1000 prints of her horse painting, Pintos, which had won the 1979 American Watercolor Society competition in New York
