this is an experment of a big painting I doing. I just had an idea so I did this small painting 9x12 inches.
the story is that the cajun of old had to wait intill twelve days after christmas to have christmas as they was still fur trapping. I do not know if this is a true story but it was told to me. I do know they was catholic and on the twelfth night after christmas they had a big party where they all dressed up in costumes .
Someone ask me to paint a christmas image so i am. i told them if they want santa claus best get someone else

It is a wonderful concept. Look forward to seeing the final outcome. I am so sorry it has been this long since I commented. Perhaps as long as a the month of August. Life has gotten in the way of Art. I will now love going through your gallery to see what I have missed.
Be well and be happy. Peace....Dag

Lovely work, Jock. The story about the trapper does make sense at least, as Twelfth Night is an important celebration they definitely wouldn't want to miss.

On the twelfth night of Christmas my true love said to me. Gee, just four long months until Xmas. A most unique style of painting here, Jock. And where have you been? You just keep disappearing from RR.

A very lovely painting, Jock, and I can believe the story. I'll bet the final painting will be spectacular!
