Oh Christmas Tree by windfalcon Oh Christmas Tree by windfalcon
When you live in the forest and you're surrounded by thousands of trees, decorating a tree for Yule seems kind of silly. After all, how would you choose which tree to decorate? So the inhabitants of the forest decided to decorate Solstice, the gryphon. She doesn't seem to mind, and all the animals are having fun finding decorations.

The crows, though, I think they chose their own 'tree.'

This is my holiday card this year. You may recognize this gryphon as being the one who was on my card for last year. I decided this would be my 'Yule gryphon," and she'll probably appear on my card for each year in one way or another. Her name, fittingly, is Solstice.

The original painting is also available on my Etsy shop: [link]


Watercolor over ink, 7.25X10 inches on cold-press Arches

Solstice, that sounds like a cool name. Plus she seems to enjoy being decorated or at least tolerate it. She must feel like she's being pampered.
