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.

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 the line art for this year's card (there's still the colored version to come). This piece represents a culmination of the imagery of the past 6 years. I think she's my favorite of them all!
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.
