This scene is from Lake George, New York. We visited in the summertime a couple years ago and I?ve painted this particular scene several times since because I love it. This time I transformed it into a winter scene and used cold wax and oil, which I found perfect for creating texture in the painting.

Title or Location: Santa Trees
This was specifically painted for my Christmas Card and I started with this ceramic Santa Gnome. I particularly loved this little gnome because it had the Christmas tree with lights like my aunt made for me back in the ?70?s. After painting him I felt I needed something else so I added a couple of ornaments next to him. BUT then, I wanted more so I used my pallet knife to create the background trees with thicker paint. It made a beautiful card!
