Gloria J Zucaro's "Wistful Snowman"

Hello Paint Party Friday friends.  Well the big day is almost here and I will be taking some time off for my Christmas preparations and celebrations.  I have a cute palette knife snowman today.  He is in oil on a 10"H x 8"W stretched canvas.  He is wistful because he thought we were going to get a really nice snow of 6" for the Christmas week.  But alas we only got about 1/2" and all the rain froze instead!   I know I should be happy, but when you live in Chicago, snow is welcomed for the holidays(by most) and ice is much more treacherous.  I really got a lot of art done this week and posted on the 17th all about working on some Artist Trading Cards, my journal page for Fall Fearless & Fly, and my new stencils from Stencil Girl some designed by Jessica Sporn  and making my tangled designs into coasters for gifts for friends.  Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and wonderful holidays for everyone.
