"All I Want For Christmas is...." was done for James Parker's blog Windows to the Words Art Challenge. The theme was to paint something we wanted for Christmas eg a diamond ring or new lap top computer, etc. I always like this doggie photo James had posted in a previous challenge. After giving some thought to what I really want for Christmas....love, everyone wants love (even dogs)....kisses, everyone wants kisses (even dogs)... Living so close to Hershey, Pa ...Hershey kisses came to mind quickly. I never realized, until I went to paint one, though, that the white paper tag reading "kisses" leans to the left to read kisses. Of course, I needed this to lean into the painting, so that is why it reads as a mirror image. Then, couldn't get the metallic glimmer in the red foil quite glimmery enough, so took the foil and paper off the kiss and collaged it to the painting and ate the chocolate. That's how easy an acrylic painting can turn into a mixed media painting. If interested in purchasing, contact Pat at firstname.lastname@example.org
