Galloway Forest Angels

I've just finished painting this year's gallery Christmas card. They are Galloway Forest angels enjoying the wonderful dark starry sky that we get round here. I had a lot of fun making this painting. I used oil paint on a gesso primed board but made the wings from fabric. I dyed the fabric with turpsy oil paint and then once I'd stuck them on I also painted over the top.

I'm getting the card layout ready now and the cards should be back from the printer in the next couple of weeks. It seems that Christmas cards arrive in the shops earlier and earlier every year. Nobody actually writes them in October do they?
