Oh my! Christine, that technique makes me jealous. From the thumb, I thought it was a realistic painting - but it's a lot better. It's one of the coolest digital paintings I've seen lately. I just love that mix of sharp colour separation and soft wash!

Yeah, that sort of melancholy warm-and-squishiness. I was actually thinking of a cross between Kris Kringle and Jerry Garcia...heh...thanks for the comment, Scott!

Fantastic painting Christine, I really love your color work in this. In some way, his whimsical expression reminds me of those old Coke ads that featured Santa Clause. Great job!

Of course! I sure as heck don't hold the patent on the concept! Just don't use my actual image; that belongs to John Kim. Cheerio!

This is a truly beautiful piece of work, I really feel the wisdom and age in his gaze. May I use the old goat-man concept in my own artwork?

Art at its best.
