Santa Greetings

Art: Santa Greetings by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
He's a pretty traditional fella. I stayed true to a primitive style, without the detail I usually put into my faces. After I learned the Tole technique, I wasn't satisfied with painting on another's creations. I had to teach myself some basic wood working. It's kind of like a puzzle. First I sketch my concept, then break it down to the necessary pieces. Make the patterns, cut and sand each individual piece, assemble and paint. They are my own designs. For me, it has given another dimension to my art. It is both 2d and 3d. It forces me to keep it simple, which isn't always the easiest thing for me. Santa's made of pine and been given 2 coats of acrylic paint, detail applied, then 2 coats of acrylic varnish with UV protection.
