The Last Present to Wrap

This is the last present I have to wrap.  It was a request by my brother-in-law (who never visits my blog though he does visit my husband’s and occasionally wanders into our house.:))  A few months ago he saw the gnome/elf painting I did based on Rachel’s “small” painting and not only loved it but requested a much larger version with more elf/gnomes in a darker setting.  It took a lot of thought and some study of color theory and reevaluating my palette for me to get it right but finally I am done and happy with it (and in the nick of time, I just need to get a frame.)  The painting is below the jump in case he DOES wander into my blog.image0
