16" x 20"


What a joyous scene! My client allowed me to use this for my Christmas cards. A technical trick: I used maskoid, which is liquid rubber, for the snowflakes in the background, which I had carefully drawn...applied it, let it dry, then painted the background in one big wash, quickly, so the colors would blend.The maskoid peels off with a soft eraser. The background wouldn't have been as loose if I had taken the time to paint around the white snowflakes.
