Nutcracker! Beware! You are so intent on watching the little mouse in the corner that the Mouse King has crept up behind you.

The battle just adds a sense of drama to the holidays and delights the mind of even the oldest “child”.

The painting was done with a #4 round brush. An old #8 filbert was used to paint the weath of a base larger areas of the design. The filbert does a nice job of "dabby" or rough blending. Use a #2 liner for fine details.
