I then decided on a winter landscape with a single tree lit up glowing softly in the snow.

Tis the Season to be Jolly! Christmas animals by Stephen Lursen

I just finished the painted version of one of my iphone 4/s case designs. In case you haven't seen the case, here it is:   I didn't want to stop with that seeing as how it is in-fact almost Christmas. So I expanded the view and made an acrylic painting to finish the project.
