Holiday Ornament 2008, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

I purchased this ornament at a department store. A nice beaded thing, it was hanging there on a tree tempting me to try all of those beady, glittering decorations. Never one to ignore a painting challenge I set up a little tree at home and painted away. These are fun. I painted a few last year, and they seemed to be well received so I thought I would try again.
So Linda you ask, this is nice but what on earth do I do with it? Well, once I decorated a tree for a charity event and placed the paintings right on the tree. The tree was auctioned off to the highest bidder and when the holiday season was over they gave the paintings to the office staff. Since each painting is gallery wrapped and comes with a hanger affixed to the back, they can be hung anywhere. Or, they could decorate a mantel. Or they could perch on a little table top easel.
I'm a little early this year. I painted it now so I would have enough time to have a Christmas card made using my own image. Enjoy, the holiday's are just around the corner!
