Christmas in May



I was looking through my sketchbook recently and found a sketch I had done in December while watching TV, so I decided to turn it into a painting.

Justin Ridge said...

Nice IO! I like how at first it seems he's just walking with his gun, but then you notice the target above....

Thanks! Yep, "A Christmas Story".

I added the sketch to the post, the door was originally in the painting but it stood out too much so I took it out and added the footprints. I tried to stay true to the movie but I had to change things like the color of the house and the location of the target.

Great composition, intriguing story bit (I haven't seen the movie, but your image suggests a lot)! Is this gouache?

Go, Ralphie! Nice one.

BTW, anybody get dragged to see THE BREAKUP? Ralphie's all grown up and playing Joey Lauren Adams' sad-sack husband. He's pretty funy, actually.
