Christmas markets and springtime in Edinburgh

It’s spring in Edinburgh. The sun has been out more than not, trees and flowers are in bloom, and the days are quite noticeably longer. Everyone, even me the winter-lover, seems to be happy about the direction things are heading. In the studio, I’m a bit all over the place. I like to be able […]

Day 14: Christmas drinks by the fire

As I’ve mentioned before, my goal this week is to keep my paintings loose, so I’m resisting the urge to clean this one up. The inspiration for this painting is an image from last Christmas, our first Christmas in the UK. It was an especially memorable and enjoyable time, in part because of the new […]

Painting: Christmas Market at Marienplatz

Day 30: Christmas market on Marienplatz

Christmas market on Marienplatz, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] The last day! I have had so much fun during this Art Every Day Month. I’ve loved getting to know other AEDMers through their blogs, and I’m pretty pleased with the paintings I’ve produced. Thank you all so much for […]

Day 23: Evening at the Christmas Market

Evening at the Christmas Market, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] The Munich Christmas markets start this weekend! Yay! I am busy getting ready for my December 4th Open Studio. Invitations went out yesterday, and it has been so fun hearing back from people who are excited to come. If […]

Painting: postcard from the Christmas market

Day 19: Postcard from the Christmas market

A Postcard from the Christmas Market, 18 x 13 cm, oil on canvas panel, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] This painting is smaller than what I usually paint. So small (and thin – it’s on canvas board) that it almost feels like a postcard. Thus the title. Are the vague faces in the foreground too creepy? November […]

Christmas painting onions and garlic

Day 18: Christmassy onions and garlic?

Onions & garlic & greenery, 24 x 18 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. Hey, if the Germans can use pickles as Christmas tree decorations, why can’t I use garlic and onions? OK, perhaps it would not be the sweetest-smelling Christmas tree on the block. These pine branches are fun to paint. Perhaps I’ll […]


Christmas painting clementines and cranberries

Day 16: Christmas clementines and cranberries

Clementines and cranberries, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. Original painting available on Etsy. A still life containing pine branches is automatically going to have a Christmas theme, isn’t it? This one started out as just clementines and branches, but as I was painting I decided it needed a small splash […]

Gluehwein at the Christmas market painting

Day 13: hot mulled wine at the Christmas market

Glühwein at the Christmas Market, 18 x 24 cm, oil on canvas. This painting is about as cutesy as I get. Two friends are enjoying mugs of glühwein, or hot mulled wine, at a Christmas market on a cold evening. Munich’s Christmas markets start in less than two weeks, and I can hardly wait. Speaking […]

Christmas market at Chinese Tower Munich

Day 3: a snowy day at the Christmas market

A snowy day the the Christmas Market (Chinese Tower), 18 x 24 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. Original painting available in my Etsy shop. I realize I’m fast forwarding a bit from yesterday’s autumn leaves, but I am so excited for Christmas market season I can hardly stand it. December is my favorite […]


Christmas market at the Chinese Tower

Happy creative 2011

Christmas market at the Chinese Tower, Munich | 18 x 24 cm | oil on canvas | @2010 Julie Galante. [SOLD] Happy new year! I had intended to start my new year by diligently posting my art goals for the year, but a couple crazy things came up this week and that just didn’t happen. […]

Christmas market in the forest

Christmas market in the woods

Christmas market in the English Garden, Munich | oil on canvas panel | 30 x 40 cm | ©2010 Julie Galante There is a huge park in the middle of Munich, even bigger than Central Park, called the English Garden. Every year there’s a Christmas market in the middle of this park, in an area […]

Christmas market on Sophienstrasse, Berlin

Daily paining: Christmas market in Berlin

20 x 20 cm, oil on stretched canvas, ©2010 Julie Galante. [SOLD] I am having a lot of fun playing around with Christmas markets as a subject. This image is from a Christmas market I visited last week in Berlin. I like the almost cartoony feel to this one – it seems right, given how […]


Christmas market at Sendlinger Tor

Christmas market at Sendlinger Tor

oil on canvas, 18 x 24 cm, ©2010 Julie Galante. [SOLD] So here’s the final version. Munich is full of Christmas markets these days, so I’m guessing this won’t be my last Christmas market painting. That is, if I manage to do a good job of balancing my Christmas market time with studio time…
