Ah, the first snowfall of the season! Who would have thought that it would be such a major storm? As I sit under the threat of loosing my power at any moment, I would like to get in a blog post while I still can. I have for you today, a recently completed painting of a reindeer. This reindeer is designed to appear on a Holiday card, and he is therefore, quite simple and idealized. I left plenty of dead-space for some happy, warm, holiday text, and kept my colors rich so that they will be appealing from a distance. I will be entering a card contest with this piece, so wish me luck!
