My holiday card for 2010 - as is tradition, it features Solstice with her forest buddies in a wintery land. :3 Here, she decides to build a snow gryphon with some help (?) from the other residents of the woods. Though such 'help' is questionable...particularly from a raven who may be adding or removing that acorn eyeball, and a fox who probably doesn't have his eye on berries!

I'll also be posting these on DA prints, so if you'd like to send these to your family and friends, you can! The original is also available - note me if interested.

Ink and watercolor on hot-press Fabriano, 7.5 X 10.5 inches.

I sent these to my friends and family and have received so many compliments on the beauty and uniqueness (which I'm pretty sure is not actually a word but hey, it's family). Your work is beloved even outside the DA community! :D

Er, not to imply that it wasn't already, since DA isn't your only posting place. This lil white gryphon isn't so eloquent before her first cup of coffee. Heehee.
