As I’ve said in my last post, I’ll be spending a while in England with my relatives over Christmas. I’ve searched for some presents for them, but nothing really stood out. I couldn’t think of any good gift ideas… until I saw these in the arts-and-crafts of a small bookshop:
I thought I could paint them each a personalised present. After painting on a lot of card and watercolour paper, I now feel confident enough to move onto canvas. I thought that a set of small paintings would make great gifts for the family. To give you a sense of the scale of the canvases, I’ve put a small mannequin (also bought from that shop) next to the miniature canvases.
And here’s an even bigger mannequin, just for the sake of it…
I’m unsure of what to paint for my relatives. Currently, I’m undecided between frogs, or winter scenes. Knowing me I’ll probably paint them frogs. So what do you think?
Should I paint some seasonal scenery or friendly Christmas frogs?
