Daily Painting Practice - Santa on vacation

This is the closest I am going to get to sending a Christmas card. (Charley Parker at Lines and Colors) has a piece on Haddon Sundblom who illustrated Santa for Coca Cola. I painted him in a little different setting.
I painted my Santa while he was on vacation. He takes off on New Year's eve and heads for the tropics or the Florida Keys.

Hi Peter, just thought I'd come visit and see what you've been working on. I also came to say "You've been tagged". It's a silly something somebody has started via blogs. You can find out more on my blog.

Merry Christmas! Kathy Jurek
