Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Bean Bag Santa'
Oil   4 x 4

I have been collecting Santas for years, and this little
red and black plaid bean bag santa is not only one of
the first I ever acquired, but it is also one of my favorites.
I am rather fond of that 'poof' ball of a beard!

He's rather small, and each year I like to hide
him Christmas Eve for the kids to find on Christmas Day. 
Now my grandchildren search for him!

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.
