Greetings From the Big Guy


Well I finally finished one of my Santas'!  And lupey me! I used oil paint...took forever to dry!  But I did enjoy dipping my brushes in the mix of colors, the smell of turpintine, the smuge of red paint on my face!   I just listed him on Ebay.  He's like a giant, old fashion post card greeting! Now I really need to go clean up the paints.  The brushes have been soaking long enough, time to wash them before they turn to goo!  

All is well on Pearl Avenue...for now!

So nice Lisa! I painted several Santas similar to this last year...and meant to this year and didn't. I hope he goes for big bucks! You are so multi talented! I adore your vintage looking snowmen.
Have a Merry Christmas!
