"I Played My Drum for Him"

 Tonight I'm sharing the 3rd painting in my Christmas Carols series - "I Played My Drum For Him." It's larger than the other two (which were approximtely 5 x 7 ) This one is painted on a round, 11-inch wood plaque. I first covered the plaque with black gesso, then used acrylics and added glitter to the star.


Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?


Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.

Until next time, I hope everyone has a blessed, happy holiday!
Cindy
