The Holidays,and my 2015 card

"Solstice"
Solstice — original digital montage, my 2015 Yuletide/Christmas card.

Another year, another Christmas card panic, but this year my solution was different; I’d found an earlier un-executed digital montage I meant for a card a few short years ago, and thought I’d like to use it this year. So I started (way too late, of course!) a painting. It’s coming along well, but I realized I’d never have it done in time to send a photo of it off to Shutterfly in time for Christmas, so I simply played with the original image in Photoshop. So pleased with the way it came out! The cards may be a little late in going out (and what else is new?) but they’ll be lovely, I think. And right, my hand never touched the image — my definition of “art” includes that I must be able to touch it — but it IS original. Enjoy!

However you celebrate, wishing you all lovely winter holidays.
