That's so lovely. The rapt attention of the child to her grandfather's words is captured so well.

Beautiful, Sheona! The little girl's expression is priceless, and adds a lot to the story of the piece. I love how his hat sort of fades into the background, and how you can't see his whole face. Very well done!

I'm a little late in checking this out for the finish. Wow! This is so nice, you captured a wonderful look on both faces. I am amazed at your work. Love the Christmas card, too.

Happy New Year!
