Living with Santa on North Pole, these cats are all a bit wary of new faces. They will all run if you get too close.
For this, and the last design I posted, my inspiration was "Santa Claws." I knew I had to paint Santa with cats. I tried two different poses, both based upon my memories, and then imagining where cats would sit on Santa. These cats like Santa's beard. And, one likes his head.
I do have a cat who sleeps on my head, but I don't have a cat who jumps on my head when I am awake. But, then, I don't wear a hat too often.
