By the Light of the Candy Cane Moon

I just love this design by Terrye French. I have painted it on two different pieces and have orders for two more teapots painted with the same cute scene. I never paint a design the same way twice... I just can't do it! I have tried, but it goes against my nature. Do you feel the same way? I even vary recipes each time I prepare one over and over. The problem is, I don't write down the changes I have made so when one turns out really well and my dearest just loves it, I have already forgotten what I did to make it better. I guess the lesson here is to always keep a pencil handy!!!

Have not made it by for awhile and have missed seeing your sweet pieces of wonderful art.

You must be very patient to paint all these wonderful designs.
Makes me want to paint again....

Hope you have a terrific weekend.

PS Is this Santa a current Terrye French pattern? I would even think about doing it.
