    1. For everyone! They're not very shy, apparently.

  2. Wife says, "Tasteful, beautifully done, nice job on the hair." For me, gotta give it the ol' "Nice job on the expressions". I like the sly and shy, what can I say.

    1. Great to hear from you two! Glad you liked it! Just remember, they only *look* shy. They seem to be having plenty of fun showing off, though!

  3. The girls definitely do look as if they are enjoying being on display and playing coy is just part of the fun!

    Aside from the obvious delights, love the very effective sense of 3-D space that you created around the girls with light and shadow, as well as the texture on the ribbons wrapping the girls, (along with the texture of the wrapping on the other gifts too, of course). The impressionistic effect of the lights and the garland on the tree is also very effective, especially as it fades into shadow on each side and on through to the bottom of the piece, altogether creating a nice cozy setting. Indeed, great use of the effects of light all through the drawing!

    I suppose this would this be an example of "gift(s) that keep on giving"?
