Nutcracker 3

Nutcracker 3 • this painting is sold

I don't know what it is about these Nutcrackers, but they're fun to paint. They were initially carved with these stern faces to poke fun at the town officials in old Germany. Now, they're a staple in our Christmas decorating.

Very icy and snowy and rainy today. I left Christkindlmarkt early to visit my Dad. Yesterday we took Gretel (his beautiful adopted kitty) into the hospital to visit. She was dressed up in a red collar with white fur and gold bells, a Christmas Santa cloak, her Santa hat and a fun hat with reindeer antlers that lit up. She sat there all afternoon with her outfit on and was the sweetest little Angel. She was so happy to see my Dad. Two sweet souls.

If you would like to purchase a 6" x 6" oil painting on stretched canvas that you see on this site, or commission a painting that is special to you, please email me.
