"Auld Lang Syne" 6 x 8 oil on board

The Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge theme for December was "memory".  We have spent part of New Year's Eve in Boston each of the past few years.  Our plan has always been to head in town late afternoon, wander about enjoying the pageantry and excitement.  We then watch the parade.  I love parades!!!  Always have.  After the parade, we grab dinner somewhere and meander back home well before midnight.  We brace for the cold, (New Englanders, after all), and love the evening.  My memories of these Dec 31st outings are vivid, the lights, the fireworks, the congenial nature of people walking about, cold fingers and face, warmly glowing windows.  The city is beautiful and elegant. History pours out of its alleys, nooks, crannies.  Lovely evenings each.  

See all the Girls' entries here.  Thanks for looking and may your New Year be just what you are looking for.
