2016 Ornament

“Heading Home”

Inspiration for the Painting:
The drawing depicts a young boy heading home from a day of sledding with his trusty beagle. The time frame of the drawing could be Christmas Eve, or just an evening leading up to the big guy’s arrival. The drawing is set in downtown St. John’s – using houses from Jelly Bean row. I chose St. John’s because it would be a new location for the ornaments, as most of the designs in the past have been of outport Newfoundland.
