Sleep In Heavenly Peace

I recently completed this painting of my grand daughter Rachel. In it she is pictured sleeping with her loved, worn, floppy stuffed dog, Arf, who has been washed at least a hundred times. This painting is going to be part of our Christmas card this year, with the narrative: "Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Rachel and Arf were snuggled all tight in her bed, while visions of Barbie's danced in her head." The painting is 1/4 sheet of Arches cold pressed watercolor paper with mostly Holbein watercolors.
