Sleigh Bells Ring
Acrylic on Multimedia Artboard
14" x 17"
(framed dimensions)
Private Collection

To paint this piece, I hung a strand of sleigh bells from the light that is clamped to the top of my easel. For lighting purposes this idea worked great. However, every time my brush pushed against the painting surface it would wiggle the easel which in turn would cause the sleigh bells to ring. I hadn't counted on this, but it sure made for a joyful painting experience, as well as an obvious title choice!
