Lady of December by AngelaSasser Lady of December by AngelaSasser

EDIT: Re-uploading after some MAJOR improvements! You can see a comparison of the old and new versions here.

If cold December gave you birth,
The month of snow and ice and mirth,
Place on your hand a turquoise blue;
Success will bless whate'er you do.

- Harriett Bishop

This piece was drawn in Photoshop CS6 with a Cintiq 12WX.

Back in 2006, I started a tradition of doing a Christmas card painting for my friends and family. I'm happy to bring you this year's card, after many sleepless nights! This piece represents a culmination of the imagery of the past 6 years, as well as the massive amount of inspiration Mucha's gemstone series has given me, of late.

I think she's my favorite of all of the Christmas Series, thus far! She's also the reboot of what I hope will be a new Art Nouveau inspired birthstone series!

December, here, includes Narcissus as her flower and Turquoise as her stone. To see the others in the Christmas series, look here.

For those who want to color the line art, you can download it here!  It is my gift to you.  Have a good holiday season, everyone!

Much improved. There is also an excellent depth of field that was missing in the earlier version.

Awesome! My mom is too. This is as much a dedication to Mucha and December as it is to my mum.:)
