Cookies for Santa Paws

This time of the year inspires me quite a lot, so I just had to¬†start a series of Christmas related paintings. The first one: Stealing Santa’s cookies and milk ūüôā

Waiting for Santa Claus

I can’t JUST¬†PAINT. It doesn’t work like that for me.¬†Every painting I make is the result of a complex internal process. I see something which inspires me, and that awakes inside me the need to put it down on a piece of paper. It happens at random moments and I don’t have much control over it. Sometimes I get inspired by the craziest things, like a word, a leaf, a bird.

This is why¬†I never painted humans before. Humans don’t really inspire me.¬†The more time I spend with humans, the more I love my dog.

However, painting landscapes and random animals¬†is easy. Painting a human is very difficult. It has to say:¬†emotion, expression … life. Painting a person I know, is even more challenging. Zero room for mistake.

So, I took a challenge. I want to get better at it, I want to learn. I believe if you can paint a human face, there’s nothing you can’t paint. It should improve my overall skills.

With Santa fast approaching, here is my first try, at painting a portrait.

Oh, yeah, and that’s Lisa, in the right lower corner ūüôā She’s¬†scanning the sky for the sleigh. And…I think she saw something out there. Hmm…

What do you guys think?
