W.I.P. A Peek at a "Tweet" Holiday Christmas in July Carol...Joy to the World!

Sketch Sneak Peek!
Over the river and through the woods...as I embark on a colorful Pop Art Mini journey of Christmas in July (ok, I'm gettin' an even earlier start...let's pretend not to notice)!
Kicking off the holiday collection is a piece that includes a little birdie that loves to "tweet" sweet and joyful Christmas Carols!  Gotta love a songbird!
Here's the "sketchy" start...from mini-mini to 12"x18" paper canvas.
(If you look closely you might be able to get a sneak peek of some other fun things coming up a bit later!)
A full reveal...eeeek...it's naked...where's the color?
"Joy to the World" 
Picking out the palette...ready for holiday pops of color!
I'm thinking red bird, big full moon (seems to always show up somewhere) 5 shades of green for the pine tree branches...ornaments...hmmm...that will be a surprise (because I haven't decided yet.)
Ok, it's back to the drawing board for me!
Wishing you a day of joyful song!

Lovely, as always, but I am happy I don't have to start on Xmas yet! Hugs, Valerie

I so see this as a Christmas card. Red bird is perfect!

What a beautiful little birdie. Can't wait to see it in color though it looks great as is.

Also--just wanted to say thanks so much for the vote on my tee shirt. Much appreciated. :-)
