Visions of vintage Christmas images I might draw have been playing round the edges of my thoughts lately… particularly the kind you see in all those wonderful movie treasures of the 1940’s. Some of the 50’s… 60’s too. I just love the classic lines of the children’s clothing of those eras – the sweet curve of a knitted cap against a rosy cheek, the Swiss chalet design on sweaters. And the way they remind me of some of my favorite artists of Good Housekeeping cover days…like Jessie Wilcox Smith…
Mm… just the sort of artwork that tells our stories even today. Art that marks a special memory or season or child’s accomplishment… like treasured ornaments we choose to hold our memories year to year…
So… googling for images I might use as inspiration and modeling… I’ve hit upon a theme for this new season.
That frosty day, zip across ice, soar on a Star, ring a Christmas bell sort of wonder!
