This is my painting for this year's Christmas card. I'd like to share it with all of you.

I wish all of you peace, happiness, and creativity for the holiday season. I hope Santa has something in his gondola for each of you. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Thanks Joan, merry xmas to you as well.

Your card is marvellous, a bit different but still seasonal. :clap:

Santa brought me some books and paints, I got them early because I was a good boy this year.

oh, wow. . . I love that Venetian Santa. that is very cool and a beautiful painting as well. I really love how you did the water, the colors and the reflections are so pretty. And the aged brick too.

Thank for sharing and happy holidays to you also!

Joan, that's so great! Venetian Santa is wonderful. Elegant concept painted so beautifully.

Merry Christmas, happy Chanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Ramadan, Midwinter, Midsummer (Down Under) and all the ways of celebrating this time of year, blessings to everyone.

EP - Santa wasn't around in the summer. I think he would have been too hot in that suit. I used a few of my little plein air paintings to compose the background for Santa. Santa came from my imagination.
