Lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree

You know the Christmas season is in full swing when it is time to light the Rockefeller  Christmas Tree.   The lighting was enjoyed by many last night here in Manhattan.  No, I did not attend, way too many folks for me but I will venture down there soon for my yearly peek. Here is a watercolor I did a few years ago to remember the evening.

This painting already has a home  but I am painting others as often as I can. Please check out my  website and now my new  Shop  Many of the Stick and Ink Sketches I did can be purchased there all framed and ready to go to a new home as well as notecards. I do hope you enjoy this watercolor, it is one of my favorites . I am listening to Christmas Carols as I write ...Hark! The Herald Angels Sing another of my favorites. 


  1. Oh Diane this is glorious. Used to love going into the city to see the tree. Always was a holiday treat. Happy painting and Merry, Merry Christmas.

    1. Good to hear from you ,yes it is an exciting time to be in the city. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas as well.
