Another old postcard.  I like the colors they used in these – or perhaps they’ve dulled over time.  I saw a lot of green in his beard, hair, and face.  OK, maybe not the teeth.  But when I first painted the teeth white, Santa looked a lot like Chucky.

About Patsye

I am an older woman and artist. I love to craft. I love to sew and knit and crochet and needlepoint. I love to paint and draw and make art with my hands. Being creative is what gets me up in the morning. Art is my tea, my fresh air, my good book, and my cats all rolled into one. I have much to share and hope you'll visit often.

    He looks like a very jolly Santa. Are you going to use him or do few more paintings before deciding on the final one?

    And we most definitely don’t want Santa looking like Chucky…
    I love how you managed to recreate the vintage look.
    I so admire you artists for not being not afraid of putting it out there…
