Whether or not Sophie thinks she is all nose with tiny eyes and ears or that every ornament has her image on it, I don’t know, but she certainly looked a little disconcerted at encountering her reflection in this way. In any case, she provided the inspiration for a bright, cheerful piece of holiday artwork!
I sketched this little oil pastel work as soon as I came home from work when I still worked a day job. The idea had been building in my imagination all day, and it was all I could do to get it on paper–I could barely work fast enough. I used it as my holiday card in 1999.
I offer this as a framed print and also as a greeting card.
