A Chat With Santa.... Finished
Ah, what one can see with fresh eyes!! Put in another four hours and I think it is done. I am fascinated with the American illustrators of the late 19th, early 20th century. Their skill in drawing astounds me. They paint things I can only dream of. And since it is the Holiday Season take a look at the Santa's painted by Haddon Sundblom, Norman Rockwell and Joseph Christian Leyendecker. I based this painting on a fragment of a Leyendecker illustration.
