This year’s Collector’s Weekend Painting Sample pays homage to the 1950s. This Santa, in traditional red, is holding a bag over one shoulder and holding a toy plane under his arm. With large eyes, reminiscent of the 1950’s children’s book illustrations, this Santa will bring back the Christmas of your youth. The felt-like flocked coat version was a limited addition introduced during Collector’s Weekend in 2013 and is no longer available.
