When I first saw this and started to read your description I thought you'd actually given up on the painting and decided to post a photo instead! It's brilliant! You've mastered acrylics with the same professionalism as you have other media. A very happy Christmas and creative 2015 to you Seok and many thanks for your comments and encouragement throught this year.

lovely work Seok, love the canine Santa! Thanks for you your supportive comments over this year and look forward to seeing many more of your lovely works, from around the globe, have a great Christmas.

Best wishes to you Seok and thank you so much for all the encouraging comments throughout the year. It's always a pleasure to see your work here, so well painted and so many interesting subjects. You say that this one was a struggle? Well, you most certainly won, it's a super Christmas painting!

This positively glows! Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2015 :)

Note to self: when rushing a Christmas painting, do not work with an unfamiliar medium. Just starting to get the hang of acrylics, so this was not the smartest move. Took me ages to do this and it was tortuous and painful. Just glad it's finally done! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everyone!
