Well then, this is a Santa that just didn’t get completed in time for Christmas Day. My children love Mary Engelbreit’s illustrated edition of Clement E. Moore’s The Night Before Christmas. They love it so much that I had wanted to try to get a small 12″ by 12″ painting on canvas completed for them so that they could enjoy a little bit of Christmas all year. Unfortunately, I accompanied a family member to the Emergency room on Christmas Eve (she is doing much better now!) and didn’t get to finish it. So, I am posting the piece still in progress, of course with a few minor changes from the original, but trying to keep with the richness of the original illustrations. Enjoy, keep Santa with you all year and keep making art!
