Happy Holidays!

A painting I did today while livestreaming. This was a christmas ornament given to me by my step-grandmother, who is probably the kindest and sweetest human being I have ever encountered. The painting took about 3 hours, it was so much fun. I need to paint still life a LOT more.

I direly need to remember when painting still life not to move so much, I skew my perception of what I'm painting and that leads to a horrid mess. My poor reindeer was fundamentally flawed through the whole process until the end when I managed to salvage her.. somewhat. ;D

Today I received my christmas gift from Ian, he took me to Cirque Du Soleil's Alegria here in Montreal. It was incredible. My mind is splattered all over the bell centre because it was completely BLOWN by the performance. Love Cirque Du Soleil. Love love love.

P.S. You can watch the video of this painting on my livestream account. http://www.livestream.com/katiedesousa

Nice colors. I really like the way you've handled the background.

Also, I loooove Cirque Du Soleil! I've only seen a live show once, from the nosebleed section, but they really are mind blowing.
