I know, I know — the last thing you want to think about is Christmas, especially when we still have Halloween and Thanksgiving to come but what’s a girl to do when she hasn’t planned any other posts and she’s just sold a couple of these greeting cards? Don’t answer that!

Angel Love is a reworking of William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s Song of the Angels and has proved surprisingly popular over the years (surprising to me, anyway). The background texture is from a scanned wrapping paper bought at the turn of the century. The gold-stamped Christmas greeting is exactly that — hand-stamped from a time when my fingers allowed me to do hand-made cards, and scanned for the purposes of digital art.

Available at the following galleries:

Two perching birds, a Santa Claus, a clown,
A rooster from the church in Santa Fe,

And someone to come home to, someone who
Can share what I bring back from overseas
And sometimes travel with me. Darling, look –
Our moon from Paris, glittering on its hook.
