Hello Santa


I have been busily working on a commission piece which will be done in a couple of days, and a few ACEOs as well. Three pencil portraits will be started next week, with several more to follow... and all will be complete by Christmas. I also want to give some gifts of art this year, and I truly hope I can do it all!

So, I have tacked up this Santa over my drawing table, with the idea that if I get everything done, he'll put something good in my stocking!

I am doing the same sort of thing, I'll use this Santa image as a motivational tool (in my mind-no copyright infringement.

He's wonderful, Liz. Such depth and texture. I'd like to see what he inspires you to create!

Hey Liz,

Every artist I know is working like an elf rite now for the holidays..we could all use your little santa above our easels. Thanks for the Max comments on my blog. I hope you're well.
Best,
Todd

Gillian,
I'm glad you like my portrayal of Santa. Now that I'm looking at him every day, I realize he resembles my husband quite a bit... he did have a beard years ago, and I suppose it would be pretty white if he grew it out now!

Todd,
Now I am picturing all these artists working away in their studios dressed in tights, tunics, and curly-toed shoes with bells!
Hope your weekend at the Button Factory went well.
