Nutcracker! Beware! You are so intent on watching the little mouse in the corner that the Mouse King has crept up behind you. Christmas tradition would not be complete with the delightful music from the Nutcracker Ballet or the story of the nutcracker by ETA Hoffman. 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.
