CHRISTMAS CARD: First Lady Picks Iowa Artist
The work of a Des Moines artist is gracing the White House Christmas card. Larassa Kabel’s painting “Bo in the Snow” was chosen.
The Des Moines Register reports a Des Moines businesswoman whose daughter works for First Lady Michelle Obama told Kabel to submit the painting. The First Lady picked “Bo in the Snow” herself.
The cards will be sent across the country and worldwide in the next week or two.
Kabel is an Iowa State University graduate. You can see more of her work at Moberg Gallery on Ingersoll Avenue in Des Moines.
