Fort Worth artist Charles Gray, 34, painted a cartoon version of himself, his 3-year-old nephew, his brother and a Pikachu, a popular character in the Pokémon franchise, on a Christmas tree ornament Nov. 16.

Gray and over 50 other artists were invited to the ornament painting session, organized by Art Tooth, Artspace111 and Sundance Square, at Sundance Square Pavilion, 201 Main St.

The ornaments, which are set to be finished Nov. 16, will decorate the Fort Worth Christmas tree annually placed in Sundance Square Plaza. The tree is scheduled to be put up on Nov. 17, and the tree will be lit and available for viewing before the Parade of Lights on Nov. 21.

Editor’s note: Sundance Square will not host a tree lighting ceremony in 2021. Language was changed to clarify there is no tree lighting ceremony.
