Just one more...

I couldn't resist one more snowman! This little guy, (actually about 15 " tall), is a 'shelf sitter'. He's a little perplexed as someone has placed his mittens in his little stick hands instead of on them. What's the little guy to do?!!

Once there was a snowman...

...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!

Let's Talk Turkey!!

Ain't he purty!!!! Yeah, well, the little 'beauty' took me almost a week to paint! He was worth it! Sure looked pretty on my Thanksgiving table! Maybe next year I can get to the Pilgrims!

My Santa!

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!

Hello Everyone!
This is just a small sample of my work that many of you have asked to see. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoy painting it.
