Hand painted 3 1/8" glass Christmas ornament featuring a yellow Labrador retriever standing in front of a Christmas tree wearing a Santa hat. Nearby is a red Christmas gift with gold colored ribbon. The words "Merry Christmas" are written in white letters above the gift. The background and rest of the ornament is a translucent medium blue color. The finish is high gloss. Glitter has been applied to the star and garland on the tree, and to the ribbon on the gift.
How Made: Started out as a frosted glass ornament which was painted with acrylic paint, decorated with glitter, and finished with a clear gloss acrylic coating. All done by hand.
Date: Painted in October 2010
Artist: David S. Straughan of Pelham, NH
