ALEX:  I love your soft bear and the dreamy colors.

Asusanrae:   your underwater Christmas certainly is filled with the spirit of the season.  I simply love the colors and the imagination of it all.  even the poor little one who feels left out.

Geri;   A Very nice Old World feel to your pen and ink Santa.   very nice pen work

I have revised my Santa as I really did post it to soon with out really looking at it for a couple of hours.  Geri you were right about the hat.   so I made some changes..  I havn't decided to use mine for a Xmas Card yet.  I kinda like last years Santa better.

Marsha and Geri your Santa's are so good! I love the colors in both of them and how they are two different views of the same photo.

Thank you Marsha and Catherine.  I was pretty satisfied with my Santa except for the face.  Its a little too cartoonish.  Some day I am going to force myself to learn how to do faces and people in general.

How does Moses make tea??  Hebrews it.

Geri, now that Santa is creative.  Wonderful free ink drawing and nice use of watercolor.  His face may be a little too broad on the left.  It may be too late to bring the white hair over to cover that broad cheek on the left (our left).  This is a great painting for a Christmas card.

Marsha, I like the changes you made to Santa.  You made the tree fuller, the fur on his hat darker and you cropped it just a tad at the bottom.  Well done!

Sam I see what you mean.  I never noticed it before.  I should have brought his whiskers up a little farther on his cheek.
