Sitting Santa

Lilibeth André, Santa Claus 08, 24x18, Oil

This retired gentleman is a professional Santa. From law practice as a profession to retirement and making people smile, he puts on the velvet clothes and visits little people and old, wherever they may be. He is no stranger to hospitals and special celebrations. I was glad to meet him and enjoyed painting his portrait.

He walked into the studio as is with a hand-carved cane in hand. He was a lot smaller than I remembered.

A part of him reminded me…of my grandfather, particularly when he’d steal a glance off pose. I would see a familiar twinkle in his eye. There was a trace of a grin and back into the pose he would go. Maybe it was the kid in me but I did find something very familiar about him.

May your Holidays be merry and warm. May the new year be bountiful and full of peace and love.



  1. Very nice
