Magic Among Us

Just in time for Christmas! This is a friend of mine, Tom Hartsfield. He lives in Panguitch, Ut--a tiny town right next to Bryce Canyon National Park. He is a professional Santa Claus. When he puts on the suit--his personna and expression change and he "becomes" Santa. I couldn't resist painting him! I call this painting "Magic Among Us". I've fallen in love with it and can't part with the original, but prints are available. They will be the same size as the original, 16x20, and are done on a stretched canvas.
