I have a collection of Santas that I keep on display during the Christmas season at my front door and needed a Christmas themed piece of art to hang over it. I thought about it for years and toyed with either painting a canvas or a banner. I decided on a banner because it's easier to store, so I started painting this banner two years ago and got as far as the red checkered boarder with green trim. Last year I painted a Santa on that I wasn't thrilled about, so again, it sat in my craft armoire for another 11 months.
After teaching my Craft Night for Moms and painting traditional Santas, I decided that I wanted him on this banner, so I painted over the original one and finally finished!
Yippee for me!!
