Santa. Tired and weary.
"The Day After." 12"x16.5" oil on primed 4-ply Strathmore Bristol paper. I painted it after college to supplement my portfolio and use as a Christmas card. Though it did get added to my portfolio for certain clients, it never became my Christmas card.
No real story behind it, but it was the first non-pet portrait that I recall painting after graduating in 1998. It's the day after Christmas (Boxing Day for some), so it seemed an obvious one to put up.
That's all I have the energy for today. Like St. Nick, I am wiped.
