CANDY CANE JIG

6x6, oil, $75.00

Love pulling out all my Christmas decorations.  I just don't seem to be getting my house decorated.  I have had more fun setting up still lifes to paint.  This probably gives you a good idea about how many checks I have off my Christmas list.  
This little snowman has been around for a very long time and he makes me happy.  Life should be so simple, with just a little peppermint to perk the spirit.

Snow men are my favorite. This painting is neat with all the shadows.

Who needs presents when there are peppermint sticks to be had?

Great painting and a clever way to avoid decorating for Christmas! Put your beautiful Christmas paintings on the mantle and spray the room with pine spray. Do you think they'll notice?

Merry Christmas!
