Happy Christmas!

Father ChristmasHere’s Father Christmas, made in 2010, who has just come out for his annual airing on our living room wall, above the fire. The bobble on the hat is made from shells, but here appears too white for the shadowed corner of the image. I don’t usually add any colour to the materials I use but this has proved the exception – since this photo was taken I have dampened down the bright whiteness with a used tea bag – a great improvement!                                                          Wishing you all a very happy Christmas time!

    I love this so much! Please could you tell me the dimensions of this piece? I’m having a hard time figuring out the scale.

      Hi Stacia,
      Thank you! This work measures 78cm x 73cm
      I work flat on a table and have to be able to reach the middle of the work
      – the maximum size I’ve worked on is 110 x 110cm
      Best wishes Jane

    Hello Jane,

    I love Father Christmas. I have less than ZERO artistic ability so my question is actually about your technique and decision-making in this beautiful piece.

    What I lack in artistic ability, I excel at in OCD😂😂😂. Why is there not more space above Father Christmas’sf hat and where is the rest of his beard😱😳😱😳😱😳😱 What or how did you decide to not do a full beard?

    Thanking you in advance for the Art 101 course on incomplete images and OCD. Merry Merry, Happy Happy🎅🏽🎅🏽🎅🏽

    Take care.
    Kathy Riley

      Hi Kathy
      Your comment made me smile!
      It’s quite usual/fashionable to slightly crop a portrait, or even crop it more than I have, but I do understand how that might have made you feel uncomfortable!

    Such a fabulous work of art – it comes around of Facebook every year, and I love it!

  13. Katie says:

    This is Beautiful! What did you use to glue the pieces down? I’ve done a few of the button/bottletop pieces with my students.

    I just saw this December 2017 and loved this picture from the moment I saw it on facebook. Have you reconsidered and produced this as a print? if not do you still have cards available? I am madly in love with this.
