Christmas Oil Santa

This is an 11x14 painting which I am donating to my parents' annual Christmas party. They do a raffle for charity, and I always donate some sort of painting. So this is my contribution for this year. I've had to look at this painting for the past two weeks, and I absolutely can't stand it anymore. But I think I remember liking it as I worked on it.
Happy holidays everyone - see you in '08!

Last entry of the year for DrawerGeeks! I wanted to try something more refined with this, because I liked the topic. But I think I may have ended up overworking it. As a side note, I've been enjoying doing small colour keys for my stuff lately. The bottom image shows the basic progression that this image went through. On the left is a ballpoint scribble that I started with, then beside that is the colour key, and beside that is the actual painting in progress.
