Waiting....

This sketch is called "Waiting for Santa"
This little girl is patiently waiting by the window, trying to sneak a peek of the jolly old Elf.
Wait, she thinks she has just heard the faint whisper of the jingle bells!
could it be???
 
 
 
I am sharing this with my friends over at Sunday Sketches.

Hi Heather,

too cute! Your narrative really brings back memories. I remember waiting for Santa as a little girl.

I moved my Sunday sketches over to my art blog at juanaalmaguer.com.

I agree with what you have been hearing here--she is adorable! I think she needs her own book so that we can find out what her Christmas story is. :)

i love your drawing-- and the story that goes with it. that was SO me when i was a little kid. i remember vividly waiting up for santa and swearing I heard his sleigh bells (and then being very worried that he would not come to our house and i had ruined christmas for my brother-- because, after all, he knows when you are sleeping and knows when you're awake!) :-) adorable painting!
