"Christmas Toys" by Carol Thompson

"On a winter slope among the fir trees, a wonderous sight suddenly appeared with a fully decorated tree and ‘Chistmas toys’ for girls and boys."

Artist comment:  "I still believe in magic, especially at Christmas time! Don’t you? This pastel painting on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper popped into my head bringing back memories of snowy hillsides with trees laden with newly fallen snow. Wouldn’t it be great to gather friends and family to decorate a tree, then place lots of gifts and toys around it to celebrate the season! This idea was the inspiration for the painting. I sketched the scene on a light-blue-toned sheet of paper, then beginning with the blues, painted the sky and shadows. The next step was to put in the light yellow-white snow. I finished with the reds, greens, blues, yellows, etc. The toys and gift packages were completed and a wintery Christmas scene was done!"
