I like this one better. I wanted to add a goat as my friends have the sweetest goats.
I will probably tinker with it a bit more on the little goat, but I wanted to share it with you so far.

When I try to outline the goat, it seems too defined, I don't know. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!;):)

Thanks Mike, your suggestion was perfect. I am happy with it now.:)

You are very much on the track; even now it's a marvelous painting!:)

Hard to believe it could be improved, but You did, dear Sandra, with Your additions!
The goat or lamb or whatever woolly pet it is, is very nice and very festive for me surrouned by manger scenes and religious symbols in here ... :D

This is lovely. It has the qualities of children's book illustration.

Thanks so much Amanda, so good to see you! I've missed you!:)

Cesare, Thanks so much for looking, and I agree with you, it does look like a lamb. I felt it was a bit symbolic as well with the three trees and the lamb. Happy that you liked it!:)

Hi Foxy, thanks so much! I am thinking of just that. I need just a bit more practice but I am close to being satisfied.:)

Hi Mike, thanks so much dear friend.:)

Thanks Steve, I appreciate your nice comment!

Very nicely done Sandy.
Since you asked for a suggestion on the goat..
You might try and darken up a few spots coming from
the outline. Sort of a spot starting at the outline?
Might break up that "outline" image you are concerned with? Not sure, but it's an idea.

Sandy - This is absolutely TERRIFFIC! Sorry I missed it. Mr Goat is just fine, he doesn't need more defining. (Just Remember - Summer Friends, and Some're not)
