Nutcracker Paintings

We collect nutcrackers.
This started accidentally, as when I met my husband they were something he and his brother received as Christmas gifts every year. My husband does not have his entire collection in the house and from where I sit, I count 15 on display.

So I made some nutcracker paintings. These are based on nutcrackers we have in our collection. one of them is in the photo below where the paintings are sitting in front of a few of them.

some of our real nutcrackers inspired these paintings. 

The colors in these are as such they would work in year round settings, like nurseries or kids' rooms, or wherever you want to bring in this tradition. To inquire on these paintings please use the contact form on my website or send an email.
