My first (and probably last) painted canvas

This week is Christmas Design SAL week. I worked on my project Monday evening and after much thinking, stitching and tearing out, I went to bed with the intention of doing something else for this SAL. After all, I have that old hardanger tree that needs to be finished. I like hardanger. This painted canvas stuff, not so much.

After a reasonably good night's sleep, I woke up determined to finish the thing. If I don't like it, that's ok. I can give it to someone as a Christmas present and never have to see it again.

Anyway, here it is:

I plan on stitching on it all this week, hoping that I can get lots done on it this month.  Sigh .... I have no idea what to do with the snowman.  Here's hoping something comes to me.  I don't think I'm a painted-canvas-type-of -stitcher.   It's probably because the painted areas are distracting.
