each year for christmas, i have been painting my parents a special painting for the holiday. they usually end up being a little rushed thanks to the stress of the christmas deadline (particularly the gingerbread one, which i did in about an hour. i'm definitely going to have to replace that one someday, i strongly dislike it.) it's kind of amusing because i know my mom feels obligated to put them all up each christmas (even if she won't admit it!), even though she could just pick one or two and switch it up each year. personally, my favorite is the snowmen, which was the very first one i made for them in 2006. i think i need to pick one style and make a series. there's too much random variety going on here.
