It's been a while since I posted but that happens lol. I have started the painting again and here is a Burgundy Santa I just finished. I took his pic out side and he looks quite at home, don't you think?

He is a bit dark but that is because I wanted the flowers to show up really good on his clothing. He is about 9 inches tall and 5 3/4 at his wides part. He is a chunky, that means that he is made from thick pine wood that is 2 inches thick so he stands real nice.

Here is a pic of his back I like to finish the backs with strokework or something so that the entire piece is decorated.

Well, stay tuned. I will be painting another santa today and then I hope to paint some Jumping Jacks known as Hampleman in Germany. Toys from my childhood. I can't wait. I remember pulling those cords lol.
