I did this piece as a Christmas Promo. The theme is "Holiday Lights". I didn't want to paint children caroling, nor did I want to paint the typical scene of a family/children in front of a light up Christmas tree or fireplace with dangling stockings. I was hesitant on most ideas until a friend (Thanks George) suggested a child turning on the lights on a Sneaky Santa! That idea immediately made me smile and feeling excited for the project. How can you not be smiling when painting the jolly fat Santa?
anyways Happy Holidays everyone!
