Gloria J Zucaro's Christmas Card "Already!?"
20"H x 16"W on Utrecht Linen Panel
$100.00 Unframed S&H to your ZIP
I painted Santa from life in a portrait class. His real name(don't tell the kids!) is Rich. He is tall and thin and has a wonderful smile. Santa was wearing his Santa hat but had a green or blue flannel shirt on in November, when this was painted. As some of you might know, when you paint a human from life, the sitting is about 3 hours long with 5 minute breaks every 20 minutes. Well, when you are sitting and staring at something across the room on the wall for three hours, you are not going to be holding a smile! I also exaggerated the creases and lines. I love the way it seems that Santa is already tired when he thinks about all that needs to be done before Christmas Eve. We all know that feeling. I had this painting made into postcards for Christmas and had "Already!?" printed down along the bottom. I wish all my friends at Paint Party Friday, and at The Daily Paintworks and Contemporary Fine Art International a Merry Christmas.
