We are now in the second half of the year, which means it is time for those of us in the gift-making sector to turn our focus to the year-end winter holidays like Christmas. I will certainly be doing Florida-themed paintings very soon, but I thought I should spotlight the watercolor paintings I did at the end of 2020.
The first, which set the tone and fired my imagination, was this cheerful and festive-looking snowman. I had a very enjoyable time painting this, with the merry red scarf and hat, the black buttons, and the blue and purple shadows, with the swirling green in the background to make the reds pop. Just pulling this painting out again to scan and upload has brightened my mood today! I often use the word “whimsical” to describe this one. While it has a different look compared to most of my other artwork, I still love it. Sometimes, it is just fun to experiment with different styles to keep myself from feeling too “stuck in a rut.”
Links to purchase original artwork and prints
The original is listed at Daily Paintworks, available for purchase if you have a eleven by fourteen inch space on your wall or desk. For smaller or larger (up to 30 by 40 inches!) prints, visit my Pixels store. If you want apparel or accessories, there is both my RedBubble subdomain and also a few at the Pixels site alongside the prints. (links open in new tab/window) I think it would make a great set of Christmas cards – both Pixels and RedBubble offer those. In fact, you could team this piece up with my two watercolor paintings of red and blue Christmas ornaments that are also perfect for greeting cards. I recommend ordering this early in the year at avoid shipping delays.
