All is Calm by The-Wizard-of-Art All is Calm by The-Wizard-of-Art
I told myself I wasn't going to do it this year. Remembering the week-long scramble to get "While the Pageant Plays" done last year, I fully planned on saving myself that headache this year. But when the muse smacks you upside the head with a brick on a rope two days before Christmas what can you do but throw yourself into a mad drawing, painting, sleep deprived, classical music feuled frenzy? So after four hours of Vivaldi, four-and-a-half hours of Mozart, nearly two hours of Chopin, and an hour of Bach, spiced up with the odd Christmas carol, I can finally relax and ice my aching digits.

Happy Christmas everyone. :iconsantafluttershyplz:

You make some of the best Christmas/Hearths Warming Eve pictures. You capture all that is correct with the season, spending it with loved ones and portraying the characters in ways that just, no pun intended, melt the heart.

Merry Christmas, if even this is a bit late.

My pleasure. We got 6 degree Celcius for Christmas day. And rain!

But we got snow falling for today.

Happy New Year! by the way.

Thank you! The colors did turn out quite nicely didn't they? I suppose in this case it was more a matter of luck than careful planning as the whole thing was rather rushed.
