I drew a lot of pictures of Christmas trees when I was a kid. They all had the same basic look-three little points going down each side of the tree, full of ornaments and a yellow star on the top.
And of course some red somewhere. Christmas colors, in other words!
My Christmas tree pin is a simple design. It may be even simpler than the one I used to draw decades ago. That seems kind of funny, but sometimes the simpler something is, the more it balances as a design.
That is part of the appeal to me of Miro, the Spanish artist who painted such wonderful and stylized people. He is my favorite modern artist and had a fabulous color sense.
But I digress! (Rather typical of me, I’m afraid.)
I do love working with color. And because I love Christmas, I, of course incorporated the traditional Christmas colors into the design. Red, green and gold. (Well, it is more of a bright yellow, but I think it works quite well anyway.)
The other part of my design I really like is the shiny black trunk of the tree. To me, it sets off and enhances all the other colors in the pin.
I’d like it very much if my enamel Christmas tree pin became a part of your traditional Christmas wardrobe.
