The Real Santa.

A little this, and a little that. I really enjoy decorating for Christmas.

I love this time of year… singing Christmas music… decorating the store, and my home…. baking… spending time with family…
I also love that I get to bring Santa back out. This painting of “Santa” has been a great focal point for our Mantel the last few years. I painted it in University… and others may have their own interpretation, but this was a real model, and he really did have a beard like that, and a red and white striped shirt. He was Santa in the off season.

Adding in colour. & being Thankful.

A little more work. & being Thankful.

I love long weekends. It’s enough time to be lazy and productive.
Feeling thankful for this extra time to work on my art—and clean the house (I even clean and organized my kitchen cupboards), spending lazy time napping on the couch, baking, family, reacquainting myself to tea time, cuddling with my dogs, appreciating fall colours, my handsome man (who drew and painted too for the first time in a long time!). 🙂

At home with art.

Paintings have a way of making a house feel “home-y.” Art can be a starting point for colour in your home, or a way to tie it all together.
