Holiday Window Art


I've had the unexpected delight of painting winter wonderland scenes not one but TWO business windows here in our cozy town of Fort Collins, Colorado. It was my first time painting 10 foot windows so getting the hang of painting my ideas backwards was a bit tricky at first! Here are photos of both store fronts. The first one is a fabulous local clothing shop (Kansas City Kitty) and the second set is one of many cozy coffee shops (Starry Night). Enjoy and happy holidays!

    1. Thank you. It was quite challenging when first learning to do it. Once I got the hang of it, the drawing part became easier. It's the aches and pains of the body afterwards! :) lol

  7. Well done Alexandra! They look wonderful and certainly add to the magic of the businesses and the season. :) I feel like holiday window decoration has become less prevalent these days and it's a joy to see your lovable characters greeting each passer-by and, no doubt, creating smiles! :)
