My Christmas Painting

See my new Santa painting? I was so excited when I won it in a blog giveaway. My good blog friend Linda, over at https://lindaslifejournal-artlady1948.blogspot.com/ is the artist who painted it.


I have the perfect small wall for it in the living room.

She is such a talented artist; the detail is so good.

I have never had a picture painted on a REAL canvas! As soon as I opened the box, I could smell the fresh oil paint! Here is her signature. What an awesome Christmas gift, everyone will be asking me about it! Thank you again Linda!

“Let them praise his name in dance; strike up the band and make great music! And why? Because God delights in his people, festoons plain folk with salvation garlands!

Psalm 149

Congratulations Ginny.

Ps. You mentioned the ostrich is larger than the Whooping Crane...but when I posted it's the largest land bird in America, it is....the ostrich is not indigenous to USA
