Merry Christmas !

Merry  Christmas Everyone!

This is a Pen and Ink card I created for a 2009 Card Exchange in the Pen & Ink Forum on the WET CANVAS Artist site. It is based on some old Public Domain Illustrations from various children's books. The Reindeer is from a last Century Alphabet book, and the goose was originally a white one...decided to make it a WILD Canada goose for the card... wobbly snow-covered fir trees and back-ground my own....the work is a combination of 2 sizes of Micron pens and a Wolff's carbon graphite pencil for shading. 

The exchange is made up of 20 people from Australia to Canada and points across the Atlantic and Pacific and in- between. You keep your original penwork, then scan  it, print up an edition and send it to the others in the exchange.have recieved about a dozen great and varied , individually designed cards thus far...nice way to ring in the New Year!


Season's Greetings One and All!
