I've done two versions: the first one can be interpreted as a traditional image but I intended it as a memorial for all the children...and their mothers...and their fathers... who perished this year because of conflicts and disease and poverty and other disasters. It's a sad card, not in tune with all the jollity and buying and selling and eating and drinking.
I cut the image in a vinyl block. The print below is on gold
handmade paper but most of the others I printed were in black on white
My second card is more cheerful and represents a hopeful star in a hopeless world.
I drew it on a graphic tablet using ArtRage software then printed a few on fine art digital paper.
I wish you all a serene and hopeful holiday, however you celebrate or
escape from it, and may the New Year bring us, and the whole world, all
the joy and peace we deserve.
Thank you for stopping by over here, my friends, you are always welcome and always appreciated.
