Just a little fun with digital photographs of my work from this past year. Now it's time to start anew and hope for productive ideas and unseen colors.

Someone I met at the Athens ARTSfest visited with her two children so that I could get impressions of their hands on the same painting. The kids picked out the things I added to the painting. Intense blues and reds were decided on for the main colors. We decided to make the plaster layer thicker than on my usual pieces - in hopes that it would emphasize the "reality" of the hands that made the prints.
I think a grandmother is going to get the painting for Christmas!

Through the years, I've made about fifty of these Santas. Friends Greg & Sharon asked that I add their dachshund with jolly old St. Nick.
After the primer and the lines, I use my acrylic paints to color Santa.
Sophie was a little apprehensive at first, then she spent some time petting the little fellow.
Santa is just a little wooden. Merry Christmas!
