I have been so busy with Kachina, Theo & Ellie visiting, I haven't been able to grab much computer time. I'll have to catch up on LiveJournal tomorrow, I know I've missed a lot! =)
We had a WONDERFUL time with Kachina & the kids here. We had some of the most fun ever! We went to the Disney parks, did a lot of holiday stuff, had fun playing games, chatting, eating good food, etc. We took them back to the airport last night - the house is so quiet now, I miss them =(
Throughout the week I've been working on a BIG painting - Theo & Ellie (and me too!) all love the Nutcracker Suite, so I decided to do a painting inspired by it. I think it's truly my best holiday painting to date. You will LOVE it! Also I have "Can't Sleep a Wink," "Holly Angel" and a lot of my Christmas themed prints (from past years gone by) available for just $9.99 on SALE this week!
"Nutcracker Suite" is a 24"x18" painting (acrylic on a sheet of cotton canvas) - HUGE - I have worked on it all week - I really put a lot of work into this one, and it truly is in the holiday spirit. The Nutcracker Suite is my favourite ballet, and incorporates some of my favourite classical music of all time. I've honoured it with this painting - featuring several of the characters - Clara, her Nutcracker doll, the Rat King, the Sugarplum Fairies, etc. etc. etc. - this is a HUGE piece with a lot going on in it. I've painted in theatre-like velvet curtains, to give a feel of a stage production! It really has to be seen in person to appreciate it! So much stuff to see! And guess what? It is up for sale on eBay - a seven day auction starting at ONE PENNY with no reserve - ending on the evening of Thursday, December 13th at 8:26 PM CENTRAL TIMEand you can see it here - click on the little sneak preview pic to see the whole painting...:
