Is everyone getting into the Christmas spirit? I’ve already had the chance to visit the Frankfurt Christmas market twice – lucky me! I just love the atmosphere there, especially at night. Lights, gingerbread hearts, the carousel and of course Glühwein (German mulled wine), always make the holidays a bit more festive. Here is a snapshot of my time at the Christmas market.
Christmas never tasted so good
My little cousin Sophia was one of my Christmas market companions and I got ride to the carousel thee times with her, how cool is that? I thought this image of her trying cotton candy for the first time captured the excitement of Christmas and the Christmas market. I loved the idea of painting someone trying something new for the first time – somehow a moment so full of anticipation. What better emotion to help capture the joy of the holidays – especially for children?
I almost forgot to share the finished portrait I last completed. It’s called Waiting at the Minibar and it is finally done. I hope you are enjoying this time before the holidays! Now on the to the Christmas present list …
