Santa Painting

Okay, I promise to stop posting about Christmas (2011) after this.

This little guy was one of my favorite projects of the season.  I saw one (in gray) in a pottery barn catalog a long time ago and wanted one in red.  So I put my cookie tools to use again to paint this guy.  I found the image by searching "santa pop art," then put it in my kopykake projector.  I used the color, "santa red" in acrylic paint and just painted away.

I got it done in the time that my husband watched a movie.  But in the morning I didn't like how I could see all the brush strokes so I went over it with a second coat.  If you look close, it's still not perfect, but I think the overall look is festive!

I put it above my painted buffet and quite enjoyed seeing his jolly face!

This isn't the first time my projector has helped me decorate my home!

I just love the thing!!!!  And I'm so glad I got around to this project this year.

Now if I could only get around to making new stockings and perfecting the art of the crockenbouche.
There's always next year!
