The following is my auction link:

The following is my auction description...:


This is my entry for this month's Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC), the theme for December being 'Krampus'.  Painted in oils upon a 10"x 7" scallop-edged wood plaque, this unique and festive original is signed and ready to hang (Note to the winning bidder: As per the nature of oil paints, this piece may need just a little wee extra time (up to a week) to fully cure/dry before being safely shipped to its new home).   

Who is familiar with that fearsome Christmas creature of European tradition, The Krampus...? 

More or less Saint Nick's dark sidekick, the legendary Krampus makes his appearance to all the naughty children during the Yuletide season, according to Germanic folklore.  In vintage greeting cards The Krampus is pictured as a rather demonic-looking fellow, complete with horns, a long tongue and often even a switch in his hand -- all to keep those misbehaving youngsters in line.  And indeed, while the legend of Krampus isn't all that widely known outside the Alpine regions of Europe...., even LESS is known of the very secretive and elusive creature, "KramPUSS".  As you can see, KramPUSS may not be quite as frightful as his cousin, Krampus, yet he still portrays several of the same iconic hallmark features.  And he wishes a Merry Christmas to all...!

 Here's hoping you enjoy my Nibblefest entry this month as much as I did painting it...!
