Countdown to Christmas Day 18 (A Woodland Christmas)

While creating my daily "Countdown to Christmas" illustrations, I'm finding that this style is definitely my favorite. I've always been a fan of Beatrix Potter - a woman and children's illustrator who's been my main influence for the past several years now. Her work is filled with the most wonderful characters and captures the heart of children in every possible way. That is my heart's desire. Therefore, I'm feeling this internal creative itch to focus on this style of mine more often. It's certainly magical and captures the true meaning of this time of year.

  2. This one is my favorite in the "Countdown to Christmas" illustrations. The darkened sky behind the tree creates a peaceful atmosphere. And the little critters all look like they are filled with wonder.
