2012's St. Lucia

 
The other day I put the finishing touches on this year's Christmas St. Lucia painting and I'm happy to be able to show it to you now--- although yes, it's a bit early for Christmas! But here she is, with her procession of little helpers.
   I think this painting will round out my series of Swedish inspired Christmas paintings, and its my hope to be able to offer a nice little postcard set of them all when we get a little closer to Christmastime. What do you think? Would you like to send your friends and family a little Swedish Christmas cheer?


   Well, it is still May, so you've got time to think about it! But til then, hope you like this one...

  4. I agree that the idea of postcards is wonderful! This painting turned out so beautiful!! I do love the dark blue night and stars as she awakens the day of Santa Lucia celebration. I am already excited about making Santa Lucia buns for the occasion!
