Fa La La La.....La? by windfalcon Fa La La La.....La? by windfalcon
This year, Solstice and her friends have decided to celebrate the winter holidays by participating in some holiday carols! Who better to sing songs than a group of birds, right?

Well, as the other birds learn, not all birds are equal when it comes to voice. Poor Solstice and her corvid friends seem perfectly happy rasping out forest versions of "Deck the Halls" while any bird with half a good ear flies for the hills! It seems those mourning doves are trying their hardest to listen politely, but the squirrels and fox can't quite hide their disapproval. Oh well, maybe next time Solstice can play an instrument instead?

As is tradition, this will be my holiday card this year. :) It's available through my DA print shop, so if you want to send a bit of cacophonous holiday cheer to those you love, you can!

Watercolor on cold-press paper. The original is 8X10 but the cards are 5X7.

I wouldn't recommend taking lessons from tone deaf friends. I've never been sure if gryphons can sing. Splendid detail by the way. Merry Christmas.

Now its' academic: Griffons can do anything besides singing. I mean look the Squirrels and the poor fox. Seems that minimum one of the singers has no ear for music at all. At last, they try and they have a lot of fun.

Oh god, even the ravens or crows are in on the action. XD
Lord knows what calls these birds are making but judging by the wildlife crouching in "agony", it's obviously out of tune. XD

Gorgeous! And the fox covering his ears is just too funny. ^^ This is my favorite piece of Christmas art I've seen on DA this year.
