A Happy Snowmen Parade


A few weeks ago I started to paint little canvases (3x3) with snowmen, put a screw eye in the top so that they can be used as holiday ornaments. I sold some of them at the crafts fair and came back with only two of them. So I decided to paint more for my shop.


However, when I went to Michaels to get more of the little canvases, they were sold out and only had an even smaller size (2x2). I wasn't sure whether I could work on such a small space but thought that I could at least try it. They came in a pack of six - and I ended up painting all six of them because it was so much fun.




By now I sold a few of them (which I am very happy about) and simply enjoy the ones I still have. I like snowmen, perhaps also because we don't have them here (lack of snow).

I'm linking to Paint Party Friday - happy to be back!

These are very cute! I have a friend who is an artist, and she did a tiny canvas which was included in her christmas cards that she sent out! It is my very favorite card. Have a wonderful holiday season.
