I am cheating. I have tried for the past three weeks to participate in a creative work called "Illustration Friday" where a theme is selected and the participating artists create their interpretations of the theme.
The theme for Illustration Friday is "Whiskers" and this painting has plenty. This is one of the designs I finished to create cards out of for the holiday season so it is not made expressly for Illustration Friday. But close counts.
What's with the nose? I love interesting noses, whether they are on cats, dogs, next door neighbors, or Santas. Now that I look at this, I see that Santa's nose looks a bit like my husband's. But, don't tell him I said that!
One of my friends called this my rocking Santa, but I don't think he's rocking. I think he's thinking!
