...tall, tall, tall...well, not quite tall! This one was so much fun to paint! I eliminated much of the details by using a 'rustic' approach. A good basecoat in a burnt umber made it look like it was stained! His scarf fringe is some 'homespun' glued on. We may not get any snow but at least I have the snowman!

After much anticipation, he is finally finished! It took me a few days more than I had expected but that was because the twins were adding to the 'work' experience. The original pattern had him holding an old tin lantern. It was cute but I'm a 'why not more' kind of person and, to me, he looks more like a Santa this way. He will be a wonderful holiday edition to our Christmas decor this year!
