On Saturday I painted this little guy. He is a vintage St. Nick ornament. He may have, once upon a time, come from the box of ornaments I have recently uncovered but I liked him so well when I got him that he actually keeps me company in my studio all year long. I have him clipped to the antler on my jack-a-lope (yep, eat your heart out.. not everyone can claim a jack-a-lope in their studio). But he keeps the Christmas spirit alive and well and makes me smile!
