Merry Christmas from Heidi Malott

Merry Christmas

Blessings to you and yours on this special day.  I hope your day is filled with warmth, love, and happiness.


This painting is sold, however, I am taking special orders at no additional commission charge, on this painting only. If you feel you would like to purchase one similar to this let me know at:

I normally charge extra for commissioned pieces but for Christmas I will be charging my regular price for these impressionistic Nativity paintings. They are signed and dated on the back and being original, they will vary.

Winter Oil Painting Frosty Morning Impressionist Landscape

"Frosty Morning"
6x6" Oil on primed art board

Painting winter landscapes can get challenging due to the lack of color from summer and fall.  There is also the challenge of many overcast days.  Sometimes you have to dig deeper to notice the subtle beauty.  Such as the softened glow across a snowy field.

Marshmallow World Winter Oil Painting Impressionism Heidi Malott

"Marshmallow World"
6"x6" oil on primed art board

"It's a marshmallow world in winter
when the snow comes to cover the ground
it's the time for play, its a whipped cream day
I wait for it the whole year round"

ha ha, no I haven't been painting in a poorly ventilated room...this song was on while I was painting today and I found it quite fitting for this scene.  The name of the song is "It's a Marshmallow World" by the one and only Dean Martin from "Dino's Christmas"

I really wish this painting could be seen in person.  The photo does not pick up the softness and subtle color very well.

Small Impressionism Paintings Original Art Heidi Malott

"December Sunset"

6x6" oil on primed art board

This winter sky is from my studio window tonight.  I am not getting used to the sun setting so early, about 5:30 pm.  By 7:00 it feels like bedtime.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I suppose depending on where you live, you do.  Oh well, the sunsets are gorgious at least.  I may do a series of these sunsets.  Have a great night!

Sisters Beach Painting Best Friends Original Art Heidi Malott

(Best Friends Forever)
6x6" oil on masonite

I love painting people enjoying on the beach.  The figures in the sunlight against the vast ocean can be so colorful.
