The St. Nicholas Collection ~ No.1 - SOLD

Christmas Dream by Kim Rempel / acrylic
Other years around the Christmas season I have sporadically posted some of these paintings from a series I did years ago but I have decided that leading up to Christmas I'd post the lot. I am taking some time off for the holidays as things are getting busy and there are a few fun things in store (more on that later : )
This was a series on how I imagined modern masters would have portrayed St. Nicholas had they been commissioned to paint his portrait. When I exhibit this series I run it as an interactive show. I have a sheet that people can fill out with the titles running down one side and the painters down another. Viewers are invited to guess which artist inspired each piece. One winner is drawn from all correct answers and they receive a gift. It's a lot of fun. And if anyone is ever interested in showing it, email me and we'll set it up! 
Perhaps we can play along online! This is the first one of ten. The title's hold a clue. You can answer back in the "Comments" section and I will draw one winner from everyone who correctly answers all ten. And I will send a gift, cause hey - it's a Christmas game! Feel free to tell your friends and have them play along!

Artists: Vincent vanGogh, Andy Warhol, Gustav Klimt, Marc Chagall, Emily Carr, Frieda Kahlo, Paul Gauguin, Jackson Pollock, Rene Magritte, Piet Mondrian

I think it must be Chagall, but he didn't paint Santa. Yours is lovely.

Great idea to spend some time enjoying the season.

I hope to see you in the New Year.

XO Barbara
