Christmas Illustration 1990: Quissett, Massachusetts

This was my second Christmas Card illustration. This image was taken from a Holiday House tour on Cape Cod. This particular home was overlooking Quissett Harbor, a place that I had sailed often with friend Dave Perry. It was a classic old Cape Cod home, complete with many antiques, such as the bureau and ships model in the background. The ornaments were all imported from Germany, handmade and quite exquisite. It is an afternoon image, before the sun starts to set. There are wreaths on the windows, and presents hidden under the tree. The original drawing is now lost, and there are very few copies of this print left.
