Seasons Greetings


St. Angus
oil on canvas
18'' x 36"

For the last few years my annual Christmas card has been derived from modifying one of my old "cow" paintings in Photoshop. Basically transforming a pastoral scene into a winter landscape. I thought this year, in addition to creating hard copies to be sent via snail mail to family and friends, I'd also post it here on my blog, as a sort of "e" card to everyone who has taken the time to visit and comment in 2007. Thanks again everybody. I hope you all have a happy holiday season. Oh and, Merry Christmooooooooos!

...and a Happy Moo Year! (couldn't resist). All amazingly gorgeous and striking pieces. Do you do any figurative work? If you can put that much expression in a cow's eyes I'd love to see what you do with people!

James, I really enjoy seeing the fruit of your amazing technical skill! I know it is a challenge to make ordinary everyday things magical and quite easy to for that magic to fade in this genre. Yet you always do it well.
But I love that Christmas card.....like to see you do more of that!
