The St. Nicholas Collection ~ No.8

Nick at Auvers by Kim Rempel / acrylic on canvas
I'm pretty sure this is the easiest one to guess. And lots of fun to paint. Ho ho ho.
If you're new to this interactive exhibit/game I'm running, the blurb below explains it all. Join at any time!
This painting is from 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 ; ) If anyone is ever interested in showing it, email me and we'll set it up! I thought it would be fun to play online. This is the eighth of ten. The title holds 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

Beautiful Van Gogh. You must have very faithful followers--they always get their answers in before me! Not that I'm the least bit competitive! :-)

Heehee - Van Gogh of course! And it's fabulous too!
I'll be putting my last post up before the new year this afternoon or tommorow, so I may not be around to comment for a while after that because there are so many things I need to do in preperation for Christmas. So - please have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New-Year!
