"Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time."
Laura Ingalls Wilder
This Santa is a gift for my 90 year old Mom. She is hosting a party for 35 of her children, grand children and great grandchildren tonight. They come home from both coasts and all around the mid-west.
It will be a wild wonderful party on Christmas Eve.
The Santa painting is my first portrait attempt. Hopefully the subject will over come the errors. Acrylic on gessoed paper, framed and beribboned for Mom.
Brunch and presents to open on Christmas morning with my own children and grands. Love this time of year.
Blessings to you and yours in this holy season celebrating our Lord's arrival here on earth.
