I couldn't let the year end without sharing my gnome that I painted in December. He is a friend of another musician that I painted a few years ago.

Angels live among us. Sometimes they hide their wings, but there is no disguising the peace and hope they bring.

Merry Christmas and God's blessings to all!

Figure Painting, Mixed Media, by Leada Wood, Texas Artist

"Dreaming Of Wonderland" ©Leada Wood 2016

"Dreaming Of Wonderland" won another blue ribbon at the Big Country Regional Art Show.  I had so much fun creating this mixed media painting. I  enjoy doing figure paintings in a way that they might remind you of someone you know. I have so many models that my muses will keep me painting for a lifetime. Thank you Katie for inspiring this painting!
