Pink Coat Santa

Painting days are the order of the season and I am enjoying every minute.
Recently I was treasure hunting, and came across a gorgeous wood carved Santa that needed a redesign.

He started out with a red coat, but quickly was dressed in a pink with winter roses, berries and fur trim, all redesigned after he came back with me to the studio.
He stands 17" tall and holds an icy aqua gift bag in one hand and wears furry trim at the base of his coat.

Glittered for holiday sparkle, he just walked over to my etsy shoppe in hopes of a new home for Christmas.

While I was on my treasure hunt I also found some gorgeous wood carved Christmas trees. They were originally green and quickly were hand painted with a fresh snow white and glittered for sparkle and winter dreams with shabby cottage charm.
This set of 2 trees also went over to my etsy shoppe and hoping to go home with someone for Christmas. They would love to be displayed with winter cottages or shine on a pretty mantel.

Many more treasures are in line to be redesigned and I hope to get it all finished for Christmas, but I always feel behind at this point of the season and never can finish everything, however each year, I give it a good try.
So back to the studio I go for more fun and happy creating.

I'll be back again soon to share some of my large hand painted Santa's from years past, and till then, have a great Autumn day.

Blessings always,
Celestina Marie
