I’m Looking For The Santa Claus Patterns…..Where Are They

Got a nice email from Scott Newcomb of Bismark today. He’d received his order for The Three Faces of Santa, had watched the DVDs and wanted to start painting…

“Darrell, I’m looking for the Santa Cat/Dog patterns, but can’t seem to find them. I went to the Patterns Menu at the top of your home page (third from the right), clicked on that, scrolled down to the Oil Painting Projects link and clicked on that, but no Santa drawings ….. What did I miss? Where are they?”

Scott, thanks for the email. Great question. You did right by going to the Patterns menu at the top of my home page (http://www.darrellcrow.com) and clicking on the word, Patterns. However scroll down the list of links until you come to Santa Claus. Click on that and you’ll find all of the patterns there.
