This has been painted in acrylics on canvas board, and was kind of a follow on from the wolf I painted earlier this month, both close up portraits with no background on square canvases.

One of my presents was a kit to make the characters from Peanuts - who doesn't love Peanuts? By the evening I had sobered up enough (!) to attempt the first one - Woodstock. Next up, Snoopy!

I'm pleased that a pair of small girls will not be disappointed this year!
As the last post dates are rapidly approaching, I think I can relax a bit now - no chance of completing anything else for Christmas!

On the needles: a Niffler - yeah, I haven't got a clue either, I'm winging it.

However, it is done and once dry will go off to do it's job. I calculated that I probably got paid about 50p an hour for this - not really worth the effort although it was enjoyable to make something someone else had designed for a change!
I have been painting, a portrait of two children, but I am loath to show it as it is a Christmas present for someone I know and there is the faintest chance they might see it and spoil the surprise. Frustrating, as I am really pleased with this one but I guess it will have to wait a few weeks!
On the needles: a pig's head....
On the easel: a bear with a hummingbird
