Pontonier Painting Update #3: The Whites. . .

That's it!  The whites are done except for one or two very small touch-ups on shirt collars and/or cuffs.

Here's where we stand this morning.  We're decorating the Christmas trees this evening, but I hope to get in a bit more brushwork -- maybe simple stuff like the boards and hand tools?  Or perhaps the wigs/hair on the men? -- this afternoon before we do that after supper.

Apropos tree-decorating, here's another old Swedish Christmas card illustration from very early in the 20th century.
