'Tis the season to purge or in this case paint the whole darn thing over. An issue with painting intricate background patterns is that they can easily steal the show. I went back into this one thinking I'd ease some of the pattern contrast-iness and that quickly evolved into softening and refining Coco-fur. This one is as good as it's gonna get, time to step away!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
