Time for Christmas Ornaments!
How have you been? I’ve still been busy painting painting and painting, lol, but it’s my hobby, job and everything in my life!
Today I’d like to show my Christmas ornaments here. It’s one of entries for the Facebook competition, “Go for Gold”.
Since I could entry up to three, I painted three pieces for it. I didn’t win the contest, and my Thai friend won! I’m so happy for him! Congratulations, Bond!!!!
I painted some National flags on some ornaments to show my theme, “Go for Gold”. If I couldn’t design some National flags on them, in that case instead of the flags, I wrote “Merry Christmas” in various languages. If I still couldn’t do that, I decorated the ornaments with National colors for some countries. My ornaments are very international. I painted some Nyon roses from Switzerland, Dresden flowers from Germany and mixed up the American style and European Style. I hope you love my ideas and the ornaments. Which one is the best ornaments for you?
This ornaments has Thai characters, Merry Christmas!
On the back side of the ornaments you can see Chinese. Back side was design for China!
I added some Merry Christmas in Korean, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese.
The ornament has some London scenery and a flag mixed of Japan and Korea. As I told you that Korea and Japan’s relationships are not good now. So, I wish they would be better and tried to create a new flag for us!
I painted the ornament from an antique card and I bought it in America with Gay. When I painted it, I really missed her because for a while I haven’t met her. I even haven’t called her for a while because I’ve been very busy painting.
The train is made by sweets, chocolates, cookies, candies and strawberry rolled cake. You can see an American-ish flag too.
You can see Japanese Merry Christmas, メリークリスマス on the train.
I put many languages of Merry Christmas as many as I could pop up on the three books.
You can just see the letters of Merry Christmas in Turkish and the flag pattern of mixed of New Zealand and Australia. I painted Canada, Spain, India, Mexico, Italy and so on.
I put my family’s names on the Christmas socks. I also painted our daughter’s first shoes and it has Brazilian national colors on them.
I still remember it clearly. When our daughter, Nana started walking, her first baby shoes were white and made from a very soft animal skin.
Ooops! The house isn’t yours, Raccoon!!! We can see his barefoot and tail, lol.
I couldn’t paint ornaments for all countries, but I tried to write Merry Christmas in other languages as many as possible I can. I know this idea is crazy, but I love the idea for Go for Gold because all of the world cerebrates Christmas like Olympic games. I saw some sad scenes of athletes and crowd members fighting over diplomatic issues during the Olympic games. I really hope for Christmas this year this world get together and celebrate our peace. I wish next year would be better for all of us.
