Posts Tagged ‘Santa Art’

I first became acquainted with Tom Browning’s art about 14 years ago. Hubby and I were on vacation and ran across some of his art in a shop we were browsing through. I was hooked. His artwork is beautiful, lovely, real.

One of my favorite things that he paints is Santa. Not just any Santa, but a Santa that looks like the real deal. His Santa paintings put me in mind of  Haddon Sundblom’s Santa artwork done for the Coca-Cola Company (and I love his images, too).

I think Santa holding the roses is my favorite of all time. You wonder if he has brought those for Mrs. Claus or just what exactly the jolly old elf is up to. I’m a sucker for romance, even with Santa!

Browning was born in the small town of Ontario, OR, which happens to be in the neighborhood of where I grew up. He began painting professionally in 1972.  Although he started out with western and wildlife subject matter, Browning has completed many wonderful  paintings with a variety of  subjects and mediums.
