Quite a Night ~ Santa Kicks Back

Merry Christmas to all! On December 4th I posted a painting of the classic "Coca Cola Santa" painted by Haddon Sundblom. The artist spent a lot of time in Tucson and it is widely acknowledged that the iconic Santa image was created while Sundblom stayed at a Tucson resort. He often used the resort owner's daughters as the child models who appear in the paintings. To read more about this "Tucson Treasure," click here.
