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.
