Red Mitten Memory

This year’s Christmas card included a red mitten which was a throw back to another card I had painted  with a red mitten lying in the snow surrounded by Utah aspen trees.  Had a few requests to bring the mitten back, so this last December I kind of infused it into an “imagined memory” of getting a Christmas tree with my dad.  I do have a memory of trudging through the Indiana snow to cut a tree, and this really is an image of dad that I had in a photograph of him walking a snow covered path………but the setting and idea for this painting is purely sentimental.  I was missing dad the day I painted it.  So it did feel real.
