MORE ON SANTA...REALLY?

WELL...I am a little behind schedule on my Christmas duties...YES, I HAD planned on getting this Santa Claus painting completed BEFORE the holidays...but, alas...more of that life stuff...so, I decided I'd go ahead and do my Santa!

SO, I started this 2'x2' cradled piece with some acrylic painting.  I actually looked at a lot of Santa paintings; specifically the background colors...and, ultimately I decided on this less traditional color of a coffee "ish" color with some red oxide thrown in...AND, of course my papers...I think I will paint him next and THEN decide if I want others in there...but, for now I like what is beginning to be...

Santa will be painted in oil...so, for this...mixed media really speaks loudly.  I love trying to fit as many elements as possible...ooooohhhhh...while typing I just remembered I wanted to add other collage materials...thanks for the reminder!!  SO, off I go!!...a little slowly as is kind of typical for the first of the year for me...but...it's not a race now is it??

HAPPY CREATING!

This looks amazing, Saundra! I love that chocolate cherry background! I love the traditional look to the drawing of Santa too. I'm thinking the one good place to add more papers would be in his beard! 'Course it is your vision so ignore me. LOL This is spectacular and will be a wonderful addition to Christmas 2012 decorations!

At this time of year when we’re all trying to ‘get off to a great start’ I love your idea of working on a subject where there is obviously no time pressure involved!
