16″×20″ acrylic painting on watercolour paper

My wife said I was acting like a Scrooze in the fact I had not done any art for Christmas this year. So this is my official Christmas art for 2009. Merry Christmas everyone.

Buy it, I’m already well into my 60’s and if I’m going to be famous, well, I’m running out of time. I like to think my work has been influenced by the great impressionists, although my wife says it’s because I won’t go and get my eyes checked. At any rate, I do love to paint watercolour and acrylics and it’s a true wish of mine that you enjoy viewing my work. Go ahead and let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. (Well….the good ones anyway.)

    wonderful painting Jim- but must say Santa does have a unique expression- the turquoise coloring is a nice touch-

  • I guess I could have made him a bit friendlier looking Fred. Thanks as always.

  • Many thanks Linda. I really don’t do many holiday paintings. I guess I like to think of my work as art, not decorations. lol
