Finally, I've completed the first batch of my 2011 Santas!
These are all hand painted on cypress knees. For those who aren't familiar with cypress knees, they are part of the root system of the cypress trees that grow so plentiful at the edges of lakes and bayous in the south. The "knees" pop up out of the water at the base of the tree. Once the tree has been cut for lumber the "knees" are just useless. That is until someone like me takes God's wonderful creation and gives it new life such as I did in creating my Santas. Visit my website, http://www.wood-n-stitches.com/ to see more.
Here's a glimpse of before and after.
