A Snowman!

 Every Christmas I try to paint my Husband (and biggest fan and supporter) a little something for Christmas that I think he would like.   So using a surface I had on hand and tried to paint something else on it, I sanded it off then started again.  The reason I go through so many sanders!
 This cute little snowman's face with the cardinal fit perfect on this surface.
This is a Renee Mullin's pattern. She has some fun designs.  I altered this a bit just due to my style.
We do not have cardinals here but I was enthralled to see them in Michigan when we went to visit one winter.season.  SIMPLY beautiful to see the red in the snow!

Just a reminder of the OFG Team promotion going on now on Etsy.

Hope this finds you warm with this cold front across the nation.
I cannot complain about a 30 degree high after hearing the news!
Enjoy your day,


  1. Your painting is just beautiful! I am sure hubby will like it. :)

  2. It's great your hubby supports you Barb! You are so talented, I truly could NEVER paint like this and I am in awe of people who can like you! Keep on creating! ~*~Lisa

  3. That is one cute little snowman. He would fit in around here right now. I sure wouldn't mind if we had a temp of 30.


  4. Wonderfully! rendered!

  5. I love how it turned out!
    Today is the first day in a long time that I finally put on a long sleeve shirt. It just doesn't get very cold in California. I am missing out on all these freezing cold weather.

  6. What a wonderful gift for your hubby, love Renee's designs! Hope you stay out of the deep freeze! Deb

  7. I always love the pretty shades of blue that you use and the red cardinal is the perfect touch.We are seeing a pair come to our feeders every day now! Sweet hugs!
