Primitive Victorian Driftwood Santa #1 2013

I've had this piece of driftwood from Alaska for years. I had originally hand painted him with simple details, but he was whispering in his good Father Christmas voice that he wanted a bit more. So I got out the clay and added features, along with a homespun sash and wreath. You can find him on ebay now. Mother's Dream Artworks

Blue Or Brown, What color are Santa's eyes? A Victorian Santa...

When I sit down to create a Santa I run into what color to paint his eyes sometimes. So I ask, what color are Santa's eyes? Does it really matter?
I painted Santa's eyes blue this time, but who knows, the next one may have brown....

Owl Be Seeing You.......

 No pun intended..... well, okay, maybe just a little. A fun and funky abstract owl, I think I will take this one to school and share with my students.
Perhaps it will inspire them to try new things. Some are amazingly artistic already, and others have untapped potential. It's fun getting to know their styles.
