Christmas Paintings in Acrylic on Canvas

Ideas for Christmas Artwork

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Small box canvases painted in acrylic- Robin,  Christmas tree  and  snow covered village scenes.

I love this time of year but the downside is not having enough time to paint as well as get the house Christmas ready, buy and wrap the pressies, decorate the tree and so on.

So it’s a good idea to : 1] Paint pictures and Christmas card designs the year before and then have them printed in time to send this year.

And the second strategy is to recycle artwork from previous years, dust them off and arrange them somewhere different in the house.

Last year, I took part in the Angel Festival of Hoylandswaine church with my art group. The church looked brilliant – full of beautiful angels.

I got so enthused this year that I arranged an angel painting evening at Barnsley and District Art Society. It was great fun. See more angels in my January post ‘ Warning – Mythical Creatures About ‘

And I did it all before the festive season to cut down on creative stress.

Merry Christmas everyone!
