11th Day of Christmas- Santa Series
This was a full sheet watercolor! It was painted in 2003. I got tired of having to do the same size, year after year. We artists don't like being told what to do, right? Anyway, I'll never forget my framer's reaction when I brought in the prints. He had already cut 50 mats of my usual size. He thought he would be saving himself the last minute fury by doing them ahead. After all, I had done the same size print for the past 10 years! I told him to save them for next year and I would go back to the other size. My favorite part of this Santa is the toes sticking out of the socks!
