During a phone conversation with my Dad,
we were discussing my recent winter/holiday illustrations
and he mentioned the following word:
Dad feels "harmony" is a word that sums up the spirit of the holidays.
We talked about it a little more and before I knew it I had picked up
a pencil and began sketching out some woodland animals
singing together - in 4-part harmony!
I found a favourite Christmas song - "Carol of the Bells"
complete with notation for Soprano Alto, Tenor, and Bass...
I placed my illustration atop this sheet music and voila!
(watercolour, sheet music, approx. 6.5' x 6.5")
If I were to put this on a holiday card front I think the interior sentiment would be:
"Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas!"
"May your holiday season be harmonious!"
Look around and see what you can do to lend some harmony to this festive season!
Wishing you all the best - always!
