Oil on Gessobord
I figured this was a good way to start the Christmas season. Better than camping outside a store all night to get a bargain. That practice still amazes me. It was in the teens and really windy here in VA the night before Thanksgiving, and they interviewed a few people on the nightly news who had set up camp outside a electronics store. YIKES! Back to the painting, this little red haired boy was fascinated by the train under one of the trees at the Hotel Roanoke. Each year, the hotel has a wonderful array of decorated trees sponsored by different organizations. It is really a Christmas wonderland. I get a real kick out of the children (and some adults) all dressed up for the holiday. This piece was done for Goose Creek Studio for their "O Christmas Tree" display. What Fun!
