I’ve been promising you a big announcement for a few weeks now… and the big day has finally arrived!
“Shhhh!” – the first painting in my new “Jolly Old Elf” series of holiday Santa paintings has made its public debut.
The original has already been sold to one of my favorite collectors. Here is what he had to say about the painting…
“The painting, “Shhhh!” takes me back to my early childhood with my thoughts of Santa and who he was for me. The Santa in Linda’s painting is just the way I pictured him – jolly, warm, rosy cheeks, happy and wanting nothing more than to make every little child glad. When I laid eyes on the finished painting, I just had to have it!
It is so festive, bright and true to life. The clever ‘painting within a painting’ was totally ingenious and a special bonus to me as I do not have the original of ‘Waiting for You under Kaufmann’s Clock’. It is as though I have the next best thing! It reminded me of the annual ritual of the ride on Thanksgiving Evening to see the Christmas windows! All in all, I felt a great tinge of nostalgia that makes me want to share it with all who cross my path, and believe me that’s a lot of people!
Linda’s talent with pastels is like no other!” ~ Fr. Richard Yagesh, Bridgeville, PA
