Not Even A Mouse - JP3259

  • Sale
  • Regular price $9.95

This little tree shaped box holds a surprise inside.  A small, cut in half,wooden egg is glued to the lower left side of the bottom to form the body and is painted to be a little mouse. Dabby blending is featured on the elf-like Santa that S. Clement Moore wrote of in his famous “Twas the Night Before Christmas", which was the inspiration for this piece. The background details are just softly indicated with Retarder blending strokes to keep the elfin Santa the center of interest.
