Jingle Bell Tree II

Once again, I love playing around with the crop feature to see what better image I might get. This is still very rough, but I could see this as a card...

Jingle Bell Tree

It's not too early to be thinking about creating Christmas cards. This cute idea was an ad for the San Diego Zoo. I had fun trying out texture medium with this one. This is probably not the right image for that because it's hard to see on the tree. The background shows it better. I also learned to be sure you are totally finished before you write anything.

Unique Cropping

The start of this painting was rather nice and then, which happens more often then not, I rushed through it and lost my direction. I like it better cropped and flipped. Maybe I could start again using the cropped version as my guide. I also want the fan shell in front to lay down a little.
It seems like smaller and simplier seem to work out best.
