OK here's my 3rd and final study for my Christmas Card for this year. I'm liking this camel for two reasons. I like that he is looking directly at YOU and the fact that I used a photo that I took this summer when a friend and I went on a private tour at the YO Ranch in the Texas hill country. I had purchased rights to use the photo references I had used for the other two camels but think I like my photo reference in this instance better. This camel has his summer coat on - the others looked like they were in full winter fur. When we went to the YO it had been 100+ for quite some time and all the animals were pretty slick.
I'm not quite finished with this painting but thought I'd show it to you anyway. When I make my Christmas cards I mount the giclee print on card stock so that it can be easily removed and framed. The card stock will have scripture and maybe a story on it. It's my gift to my family, friends and clients.
If you would like a Christmas card from me this year I will be more than glad to send you one. All you have to do is e-mail me your name and complete mailing address by November 15th. It will be my gift to you for having an interest in my art and following my blog.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
