O Holy Night

"O Holy Night" is one of my many favorite Christmas carols.  I really didn't have a plan when I started this one.  Sometimes I kind of see what I want to do beforehand, and then carefully plan it out.  This time, I just did what came to mind each step of the way; so even though there were a few times that I thought I would toss it, I just let it keep developing despite the decisions that I thought had possibly ruined it. 
Despite the loose style of calligraphy and lack of much else to illustrate it but the angel, I like the result. The message of the carol is emphasized, which is most important, after all. I added quite a bit of gold and silver paint to this piece, which makes the original one of those which will rival any print that represents it.
