Santa with Coco, 20x 6", Oil on Linen, 2012. I am truly fortunate to have been able to paint Santa. He took some time out of his busy schedule to pose for my portrait group. Our painting group started off with some quick poses before moving on to a longer pose. In this pose, Santa settles down for something warming to drink. I’ll let the viewer guess as to the mug's contents. Sometimes famous people are not approachable. But not Santa. He has an easy, friendly nature. I'm happy to report that his reputation is completely accurate. Available
