early resolution

One of my New Year's Painting Resolutions is to do more hand studies, so I thought I'd start early and do one for the Daily Paintworks 12 Days of Christmas Challenge.

  8. This a fun interpretation of the song. I got it right away.

    I also want to wish you a Merry X-mas and a Happy New Year.

  9. Such an original way to interpret the 'five gold rings'. An intriguing painting - the more I look at it, the more circles, rings, arcs and ellipses I see throughout the painting. Lovely hand. I have to admit hand-drawing has lapsed for a long time so you spur me to have a go again in the New Year.
    Best wishes for Christmas, and for a peaceful and healthy year in 2013.
