TOP TEN IN THE CHALLENGE JOLLY OLD ST. NICHOLAS GROUP VIEWS 116 FAVS 24 11/08/11
FEATURED IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON 11/15/11
FEATURED IN NEW CREATIONS OF BEAUTIFUL ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY 11/2/11

I have been considering painting Santa for quite some time and finally found the right mood. Santa has been portrayed in many ways by artists of numerous countries. This year I felt Santa might be a bit more serious, even a little blue at Christmas, with all the crisis throughout the world. In my work, he is peaceful and reflective, trying to find a way to create joy in spite of all the difficulties.

This is a miniature painting only 3/4" by 2" done with Winsor and Newton watercolors on Strathmore 140# coldpress paper. The painting is signed on the back due to the small dimensions.

*Additional framing and matting options are available for this work at my other site !http://1-angela-davies.fineartamerica.com Cards are not available at that site for this work.

I am a photographer who loves to paint. Or, I am a painter who loves photography? No matter, they are very compatible! :) I really enjoy working in watercolor, and love the magical qualities that it can give to a work of art! You will see photography,watercolor and acrylic paintings on my bubble. Hope you enjoy! :)

    Angie for me this is one of the best paintings so far outstanding art work with all the crisis thoughout the world your beautiful wee painting does bring joy and hope that we may find our Christmas spirit just love it lee

  • What a nice thing to say Lee! I agree with you. I was able to achieve a softness with this work. It seemed to flow out of me with the greatest of ease. When that happens, I usually get some of my best work. I appreciate the fave and your support so much!
