Santa Baby

Another blue-eyed Santa...  I resisted over-futzing and really love that he is loose and "sketchy." Again and again, I tell myself, "step away from the painting."  It's hard to stop when you're having fun!  

Mr. Right and I are so happy to have all our elves home and things are happily busy in our workshop. Hope you're enjoying the holidaze and, as always, thanks for looking.

Gratitude & the Blue-Eyed Santas

With gratitude, this morning I'm thinking about loyal collectors. It's all about shared passion and friendship and encouragement. It's about the catch-up chats and cups of coffee I'm enjoying as I deliver paintings that have sold locally. It's about connections.  It's soooo NOT about the money.

I'm affectionately thinking of these as the "blue-eyed Santas" as I find I leave that Tiffany-blue ground color peeking through the "whites" more often than not. I've gotten a number of questions about process and supplies and I plan to put together a post about that soon.  Have a great remember-what-you're-grateful-for day!
