New York Santa


ACEO - Watercolor on Fabriano 140lbs Artist's paper painted with Winsor & Newton Artist paints.

Three years ago, me and my family went to New York for a Christmas short vacation. It was our first time in USA and everything sounded so special and so different from home. Manhattan was a "tourbillon" of colors the trafic was terrific, and people was so frenetic in their christmas shopping.

We walked for miles and our feet were burning by this, but we stood outside from 7 o'clock in the morning, 'till midnight trying to see everything an all.

This Santa Clause remained in my mind, and I painted him in the way I can remember, because he was the only person remained in the street in a lonely night, shaking his bell in a corner of a street. I talk with him for a while with both my two children watching as if was dialing with a ghost!

Your painting is very evocative of your lonely Santa in the street story.
Nicely done!
