Checking It Twice

Our son David was on the road to Michigan from Kentucky and sent us a photo from his phone. He said, "I'm having breakfast with Santa." , or something like that. The photo was just of a man's head with white hair and a beard. I was inspired to paint Santa, something that I have never thought of doing. I started thinking about him checking his list and having coffee in a diner at the North Pole. The photo was only a head shot so Gene posed for me and here is the result.
