8 x 8 Oil on Gessobord
This "Santa" man looked like he had the world on his shoulders as he walked by me at the Hotel Roanoke. He was dressed the part, though. He had on a red velvet jacket and, of course, the hat. His wife was leading the way and the interesting thing is that she was not dressed "Christmasy" at all. As a matter of fact, she looked rather plain, so I wonder what the scene was like at their house that morning as they dressed. Whatever it was, I so enjoyed painting him! Bah Humbug and Merry Christmas all rolled into one.
