Theorem paintings are considered traditional folk art and were popular back in the 1800's and through time the tradition has continued although not many artists are doing them anymore. This piece was done by Dorrie who has been doing theorems since the 1980's when I first met her and Santas have always been one of her favorites. This Santa and his goose has been done on an aged cotton velveteen with the use of hand cut stencils designed by Dorrie and oil paints which gives the painting a wonderful depth. Santa comes mounted under glass in an old vintage frame, complete with dust cover and ready to hang. The piece measures 13 x 11. Truly a beautiful piece that will past the test of time, from Christmas to Christmas. SOLD
