Artist Comments: This is one of my favorite paintings. The
initial idea was to have Santa decorating a small tree in front of the train and
maybe have children watching. But the idea quickly evolved into Santa doing the
whole train. A few extra things may be noticed. The engine number is 25. In the
sky to the upper right is the constellation Leo. The character in front of Santa
is his friend Sidekick, not a bear but a little white dog.
