Having painted some wildebeests earlier this year, I decided to try one in a Christmas theme. I am calling this Can You Teach a Wildebeest to Fly? - Christmas 2011. There are a few little things I will refine once this sets up a bit but it is mostly done. Poor Santa - he certainly has his hands full with this wild beast! I wonder what happened to Rudolph - it could be that he retired this year! :) 18 x 24 oil on linen
Love it, susan! I think you are back in the groove.ReplyDelete
I'm not so sure Santa's smiling under that beard! Fun painting Susan!ReplyDelete
Oh my, Santa is in for a wild ride! But once he subdues this beastie, he'll have quite the helper.ReplyDelete
So love the energy and movement that you create. You make it seem quite effortless.
Oh Kathryn, I hope so - the brush is starting to feel more comfortable in myhand again. Thank you Susan - and it was fun to paint and to dream up! Hi, Shairley - thanks for stopping by and commenting - I appreciate your words!ReplyDelete
A fun painting, Santa's really got his hands full :-)ReplyDelete
What a great card this is going to be - so original and I love the colours you've used.ReplyDelete
E' spettacolare questa renna assatanata e nanno matale quasi in volo! Mi piace moltissimo e. casa non da poco, cancella la retorita delle solite immagini natalizie. Questa immagime mi rimarrà impressa per vari natali. Ciao e grazie. (spero tu capisca l'italiano, altrimenti proverò a tradurre in inglese)ReplyDelete
ho fatto degli errori: babbo natale - retorica -ReplyDelete
I try in english. It is meravilleuse this renna assatanata (i don't know the translation) and father noel just flying.
