"Holiday Ballad" by Carol Thompson

"As the crew of the fishing vessel ‘Ballad’ heads home for the holidays, the glow of a very special star sends a ‘holiday ballad’ to all.

Artist comment:  "Fishing boats hold a very special place in my heart. It is with joy and honor that I painted the ‘Ballad’ to represent this most wonderful season. The boat is real, but the setting is stylized to bring together the images of Christmas. I used Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper for my substrate. I sketched the scene, lightly, with pencil, then beginning with sea and sky, I completed the background to include the star and it’s rays reflected in the water. Then I did the boat and it’s reflection. Finally I put in the ‘lighted’ Christmas tree. How Fun!
