The Twelve Days of Christmas
Twelfth Day – Chris Millar

TrépanierBaer’s twelfth day of Christmas has arrived.

Chris Millar’s To My Dear Husband painting is the perfect gift for your true love as this piece was conceived as a sweet reward from one spouse to the other. The piece delicately depicts a doting and devoted husband who has returned home with a splendid and fragrant bouquet of florals and botanicals from the market for his wife, who is a still life painter.

So impressed was his wife with the ardor and earnestness shown by her honey-do that she recorded the event in this painting, placed it in this delicate and intricate frame with the title inscribed on the verso: To My Dear Husband.

As this is the twelfth day, the only drummers we found were timpani specialists and twelve of them being percussive together at the same time is not the context needed to gift this work!
The painting is enough to sweep your true love’s feet off the floor! No drums, pipers, leaping lords, and dancing ladies required!

We look forward to seeing you at the gallery!
