Whimsical Santa {Art Journal}

Whimsical Santa in altered book

Just a little freehand sketch done in my altered book (an old copy of A Christmas Carol). I had not used acrylics in a while, so this one was almost like using a new medium. I’m afraid I’m becoming hopelessly attached to watercolor. The idea for this little character came from a piece of our Christmas wrapping paper.

The right-hand page has an interesting history of the character of Santa.

In my rehab nursing world, I see this Santa with an assistive device, a cane!

That is so funny, and I can see how that would be the first thing that comes to your mind!
