Flamingo Hand Painted Glass Christmas Ornament 2 1/2"


Hand painted 2 1/2" glass Christmas ornament showing a smiling pink flamingo in a Santa hat walking in a grouping of red and white hibiscus flowers. The background is white and yellow  which form an elliptical shape surrounded by a stripe of gold glitter. Some glitter has also been applied to the flamingo, the hat and the flowers. The finish is high gloss.

Date: Painted in Fall of 2010

Status: Gone

Artist: David S. Straughan of Pelham, NH
