Yuletide Greetings from Chicago

Here in frosty Chicago , I have felt  the wintry chill for weeks, yet my calendar informs me that true winter isn’t until tomorrow, the 21st of December. So in honor of all manner of frosty solstice cheer  and Yuletide goodwill, I share today’s drawing-painting.

Happy Yuletide, from here, to you.

Glimmers of our first Chicago Christmas follow.

Direct inspiration for one of the characters in the drawing ; I have a passion for collecting these chenille doodads.

@Art Institute, apparently a holiday tradition, a handsome pair.
