Day 362 Suzy's Nutcrackers #1

Suzy's Nutcrackers #1
Oil on Linen Panel
My friend Suzy has a passion for all things Christmas, including a large collection of nutcrackers. I visited her home last week just before she started taking her Christmas decorations down. It was a real treat to see her extensive collection of ornaments and decorations, while hearing how many of the pieces were family heirlooms.  Her regal nutcrackers especially caught my eye. She kindly let me take photos of several of them to paint later. Thank you again Suzy for a lovely afternoon!
