I was just going to draw one of the ornaments on my tree. But I do not like still life, apparently on a molecular level, because this happened:
The mighty wooden soldier does battle with the ancient dragon-fly for the life of the Christmas Tree! Huzzah!
My favorite thing about this picture is the way the background turned out. I wanted to get some of the speckled effect that actual Christmas ornaments get from the lights and branches and all, and it was just luck that the background showed through pretty much along those lines.
Also, I love the heck out of Christmas. Expect blather along those lines for at least the next 12 days.
