Merry Christmas!

This is my rendition of the Ghost of Christmas Present, a profound character found in the story of Scrooge.  He is such a jolly fellow.  I adore the story and I have a copy of just about every movie made featuring Scrooge--with the exception of Mr. Magoo.

This drawing has no pen and ink lines--it was done entirely with Prismacolor pencils.  Of course, my Beloved posed for this piece--and every time I look into those clear blue eyes?  (sigh)  Well, my heart starts beating faster!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

another great image :)

I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season and that you have a very happy New Year!

Wonderful! I'm guessing your Beloved was not actually wearing holly while posing, or his smile would not be so jolly. ;-)

All the best to you and your family this Christmas season and in the New Year.
