Jerry, Jimmy & Jackson Mouse have a very important task on the decorating team. Their responsibility is to hoist and position the Angel onto the very top of the tree. Here you see them doing the final adjustments as this special Angel glows from within with joy.

“'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;”………
But that’s not exactly true because Santa’s little mouse Christmas tree decorating team is very busy at work, for it is their job to make sure that all the Christmas trees are fully decorated by Christmas morning.

For this one, I used Strathmore illustration board, drew out my design in colored pencil and then did my painting with watercolor paint. It is finished with a few coats of acrylic varnish.
