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...


  1. Oh please do make up the postcard sets! Finally I'll be inspired to get my Christmas cards posted out! Fingers crossed, natalie jo

  2. It's beautiful and I think a postcard set is a great idea.

  3. I think a postcard set is a lovely idea too. Oh and I have to e-mail you very soon and tell you about something truly lovely that happened to me last week!

  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!

  5. ÅÅåååååhhh!!!!! Ooh my God!!! I have been able to bring home your portrait of me now!!! And I love it so so very very much!! I couldn´t believe my eyes, my heart..almost, when I opened the package and saw it! You are so extremely talented my friend!
