Sankta Lucia

Although I'm Italian and I chose to live in warm Florida, I have always been fascinated by the great North.
Today is December 13th, one of the shortest days of winter, and girls in Scandinavia dress up as Sankta Lucia (Saint Lucy) wearing a white dress and a crown of candles.
I wanted to sketch this vision so I used the face stamp again and freely painted around it over crackle painted card-stock.
Far from being a masterpiece....... LOL

Click here to see a video of Swedish girls singing Sankta Lucia.
