I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas! (Detail)

This is a sneak peek of my Christmas card. Hopefully with everything I have to do, including homework, I'll have it finished next week. It was inspired by a Saturday Evening Post cover painted by J.C. Leyendecker.

I don't want to give too much away. So I'm not going to say too much about it. The model is my son Emmett, plus Buster Brown curls. I'm using a 1930s inspired color palette, like Leyendecker would have used. When I post the finished painting, maybe a post before, I'm planning on posting a little tutorial/progress.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Mine was great, other than wrecking my car on the way to dinner. Luckily my turkey didn't go through the windshield. If it had, I just would have brushed it off, and warned everyone to watch for broken glass.

Thanks for looking!
