I thought I would post another Christmas card painting.  This card was done back in 2008, and is one of my favorites.  I collect Santas, and I've always found this one puts a smile on my face.  I guess because it is not a traditional Santa, and I like the story he tells.  Painting the plaid on his hat was especially fun, as well as the pattern on his pillow.  His night shirt is plaid like his hat, but for the sake of time I ended up painting it red.  I'm still thinking about this year's card, I sure hope I have time to paint something.
