In September, I got the gumption to begin painting this years' ornaments. I have now painted over 75 so far...
It's been fun to paint on miniature 2x2in. canvases, celebrating a bit of Christmas with each one.
Here's a small sampling:

This year I also began creating personalized ornaments for babies, kids, families and young couples - How I wish I could show you those! (But I can't risk spoiling any surprises!) Here are my sketches though - inspired by 2 babies in our small group at church, who will celebrate their first Christmas this year.
If this sparks an idea for a gift, contact me by December 10th! (that's tomorrow!) Art.firstname.lastname@example.org
I have also been celebrating on 2 1/2 x 3 1/2in. and 3x3in. canvases - and setting them on miniature easels. http://www.dawneaton.com/miniature-paintings.html
I LOVE being part of surprises and giving special gifts!
I have a few larger paintings waiting in the wings - I look forward to sharing them with you in January. :)
I hope you are finding creative ways to celebrate the Season!
