Above is the image gracing my 2008 year-end holiday card.
In 2007, I created a card featuring 2 dancers and the word "joyous" on the front. "Noel" was awaiting the recipient upon opening the card.
I liked the subject and the concept from 2007 so much, I decided to repeat the idea for this year's card, with a different image, of course.
I wanted to keep the colors warm and reddish, to reflect those we see this time of year. I wanted the image to say, "joyous," and play well with the energetic brushwork I planned on using.
Thanks so much to everyone who has taken the time to view this blog, whether you are a first-time viewer or a faithful follower. I'm looking forward to a positive 2009, and wish the same for you. You may always follow the year, as it unfolds, through this blog, as I update work every week or two, my website, and my monthly newsletter (please see the link to the right to sign-up).
I wish you all the best for a wonderful holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous 2009.
