"Santa's In The Village" by Carol Thompson

"Close your eyes sleepyheads and dream of toys and sugary sweets because ‘Santa’s in the village’ and will come down your chimney tonight."

Artist comment:  "Unbeknownst to most people, Santa is an avid kite flyer. On one particular Christmas Eve, he gave the reindeer the night off, hitched his sleigh to his favorite set of kites and took off. The magic of flying without any discernable breeze could only happen at this wondrous time of the year. Soaring over a seaside village, the light from it’s candy-cane striped lighthouse helped guide him from rooftop to rooftop. I captured that moment with pastel paints on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper. Starting with a rough sketch, I indicated the cozy homes, Santa’s big red sleigh laden with toys and gifts, and four primary colored kites, each with two reindeer images on them. The long tail of the red kite brings you wishes of a very Merry Christmas!"
