Father Christmas

 I fell in love with this poem so much,
had to illustrate it, done in quache on illustration board :)

Father Christmas

"The long velvet robe, trimmed in mink, provides swift movement from place to place . . . Antique sleigh bells & braided cords worn on his pouch signify hope . . . Twigs of evergreen decorating his beret & staff represent the harbinger of spring . . . The Bag of Switches slung over his shoulder provides children with a incentive to be good or else...

Wherever Father Christmas goes, he brings the Magic & Beauty of Christmas with Him. ..

Merry Christmas to all!~
