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.
