Paint Party Friday....a painting of munchkin with Santa ....from Light up night....










Hi Everyone....and Happy Friday....

Last Thursday we all attended Light up Night in our town and we all walk across the bridge over the river to see the light show....drink hot cocoa....eat homemade cookies.....and share some fun times with our sweet friends....it all end with a super sweet visit with Santa.....our munchkin loves to visit Santa and talk to him....this year it was a riot and a half....

Santa asked Cole what he wanted for Christmas and Cole said..."Cars" and Santa thought he said clothes....so Santa said "Clothes" and Cole laughed and laughed and said " no!!! I said Cars".....so Santa says to him....its a good thing you cleared that up because I saw some super cool socks I was going to drop off....we all laughed .....it was so cute!!!

Cole still brings it up....and we laugh....so I think for a little Santa joke...Cole may get some cute socks in his stocking with a note....

Anyways.....I was so inspired by that night and the Holidays that I had to paint Cole and Santa....so I did and now I am sharing it with you all.....

If you would like a custom painting you can head to my custom shop and order one!!!


Happy Paint Party Friday and Happy Creating Everyone....

I'm so glad Cole spoke up, my children were always so very shy they would have ended up with the socks, thats a beautiful portrait, such a beautiful boy, ( don;t tell him I said that) lol, but he is a beautiful child, handsome,

I love your drawings, Diane. What a sweet boy and a great Santa with a sense of humor. It looks like you live in a wonderful community. I love the different colors of the lights, too.

Lovely Santa painting, I bet it will always remind you of the 'Santa joke' :)

Nic McLean said...

Light up night seems like a fun event and I'm glad Cole cleared up the misunderstanding - I'm sure Santa thought it unusual that a wee boy would be asking for clothes!!
