An Annual Pleasure
I'm not one of those folks who start hanging lights and decorations as soon as they see the first autumn leaf fall. But even before that leaf, I start thinking HOLIDAY, because a new Philly Holiday card is an annual task - and a great pleasure - to create!
For 2022 I decided to feature Philly's beautiful Rittenhouse Square, with Center City showing just beyond. It's a pretty scene in any season, but with those celebrated lights and some freshly-fallen snow, it's picture-perfect. Two happy shoppers, bundled up for the cold, make tracks across the urban winter wonderland.
Here are two in process images: the initial simple black and white sketch, then a step-along-the-way where you can see the fun of peppering the scene with lights and sprinkles of 'snow' to give a sense of the lovely holiday scene each year in Rittenhouse.
Each year I offer several choices of cards in single design boxed sets and a mixed set, always with one that's brand new! You can also find my cards - Holiday and regular - at Paper on Pine on Sansome Street.
I'm about to send out my October Newsletter, where you'll find details of this year's Philly Holiday cards - what, where and when to order. You can sign up for the Newsletter (about 4 mailings a year) on this website, and you can also find information about the Holiday cards and great gift ideas by following me on Instagram (MacGregorArtDesigns) and FB (MacGregorArt)
