Wassail Acrylic painting on text collage on canvas, 6"x6"

Original & prints available on Etsy.

This is another curiotype for A.Word.A.Day. It was really challenging (but fun) to paint because of all the teeny-tiny tools. I cribbed them from Joseph’s workbench in Campin’s Mérode Altarpiece.

‘Tis the season for maximum mess-making around here. I love making gifts, but as always when I’m in the midst of an interesting project, I seem to develop a severe case of mess-blindness. Between all the crafting, Etsy packaging, card-making, decorating, gift-wrapping & artwork, my studio tends to build up quite an alarming residue of tools & materials as Christmas approaches.

By Christmas Eve I always feel exhausted, overwhelmed by the surrounding detritus, yet giddy with some sort of seasonal magic. I figure Santa’s elves must feel the same way. Also, I think a little celebratory beverage can make clean-up time a lot more bearable, don’t you?

Good Wassail to all of you lovely oddment-hunters!
