Merry Christmas 2014

Merry Christmas 2014

This image was inspired by my good friend, Dan, who dresses up as Santa each year and does numerous kid's Christmas parties. He starts by not shaving, starting sometime in the summer to achieve a fantastic beard and moustache. Now that's dedication to the cause! I hope everyone enjoys time with friends and family this holiday season. Peace on Earth! Merry Christmas!

One of my last Face Painting events of 2014

This weekend I was face painting at one of my last events of 2014.  It has been a fun year and this young man had a fun twist on getting his face into the holiday spirit.  I love the smirk too!

Christmas Card for the Northern and Southern Jubilee Auditorium staff

I was asked to do a group caricature Christmas Card for the Northern (Edmonton) and Southern (Calgary) Jubilee Auditorium staff. As you can see, I was lucky enough to work on some great faces! I was really pleased at the process using my tablet. I so love using my Cintiq Companion and being able to draw directly on the screen. It really is such cool technology. All the advantages of hand drawn art while throwing in advantages of a computer.

caricatures of couple at Christmas party Edmonton

I had a blast drawing people at Maple Reinders Christmas Party! Before I left I’d written on Facebook, “I hope they have some good faces for me to draw.” Well, I think they did! Check some of them out.

Christmas Window Painting at St Albert's Farlie Travel


Back again this year at Farlie Travel in St. Albert to do their Christmas window painting. A great group of people that are very welcoming. I definitely enjoy my time there while I’m painting.

In these paintings, specifically the “Merry Christmas” window you can see by the two photos, what my windows look like from both inside and outside. I’ve very proud of how tidy the inside is for the enjoyment of customers who happen to stop in to organise their holiday plans.

Edmonton Artists Tim Hortons Window painting

184 Street and 111 Ave in West Edmonton

Last night I painted my third Tim Hortons restaurant in 3 nights - I am a bit tired now... It was nice weather so that helped, it can get quite cold painting windows near the doors.  I guess I should keep count but I have painted a lot of Santas on Windows.  I try to make each one special and somewhat unique.  

When I paint windows I try to make them look good inside and outside.  It takes a bit longer but I hope people like the results.  Making windows a little festive is fun and when the days are short it adds a bit of colour to the restaurant.

Cheers, Laurel

Window painting at Haps Hungry House Edmonton

Window painting at Haps Hungry House Edmonton

It's always a pleasure to paint Christmas windows for Hap and Mary at Hap's Hungry House.
Mary decorates while I paint. Good conversation while we work!

Go into Hap's for a delicious breakfast or lunch in a cozy atmosphere. Hap's is open Tuesday - Saturday 7 am - 3 pm, Sundays 8 am - 3 pm and they are closed on Mondays.

These photos show some of the images from the outside and some from the inside. You can see that the inside is still neat and tidy, an important thing in my view. Window painting is supposed to attract customers but if your window painting is messy on the inside, it's not visually enjoyable for your customers once they're inside.

Caricatures at Investors Group Christmas Party, Edmonton

I had a really great time with a fabulous bunch of people of Investors Group for their Christmas party! They were nice enough to feed me supper along with great conversation at our table. Once back at the drawing board I drew some of these great people …
