Santa Nutcracker

Merry Christmas!

I don't believe this little guy has ever actually cracked a nut, but he stands guard - ready to do so should the need ever arise!

He is one of the few nutcrackers in my collection that I actually purchased myself.  I love his simplicity.

I decided to immortalize him in a painting to submit to Calypso Moon Artist Movement.  The challenge was to create a painting that could be used as a Christmas card.  I think he'd make a fine greeting card!.


  1. Definitely a Christmas card! I love it. The color is perfectly painted.
