Nutcracker Pony

This little painting is the last Christmas image for the year. The nutcracker was a gift back in 2007 and actually sits much taller, but I wanted it to look more compact to fit better in the 6x6 format. The result reminds me of a childlike image.

I improvised the background to create visual interest for the space, and the actual colors of the pony are more saturated than the image suggests.

The lines you see are reflections because the paint is still wet, and are not so obvious in the real painting.

  2. Lori, I don't know if you will get this reply, and I know it is late, but I just updated my blog settings and thought I'd reply to you comment as a test. Let me know if you are notified on this reply.

    BTW, loved the venue last evening - hope it went better than you expected.
