What a super fun painting to do! Each nutcracker of this nutcracker ensemble represents a member of a family, and together, this is really a family portrait unlike all others! I must say, the artist complete with his palette, paintbrush and easel is my favorite - but each is full of so much character! It is a wonderful idea to find nutcrackers that take on the personalities of family members! I think I will be on the lookout for my own "family" gathering! This painting makes 1430 in 1430 days, and now back to work!
