Wishing everyone a wonderful close to 2010 and light and laughter into 2011!

Winter's Nest is a personal piece that sprung from a vision of a nest high atop a tree overlooking a wintry landscape. But in the nest radiates a golden light, for a magical birth is taking place: a foretold golden owlet is hatching to snowy owl parents. To honor this occasion a wood fairy has come with a gift. =)

Wow this is amazing! I love the textures you used...the fluffy owls, the rough bark, the slick icicles. And the little owl in the stars in the background is a nice touch :D Your lighting is spectacular as well. Sooo well done!

I usually fav, store, and run without any comment, but this is fantastic! Great colors and I like that the characters aren't overblown...I'm sick of angel/fairy wings!
