Happy new year!

Well as the old year rolls over and the new one comes I decided to create a greeting card. Unfortunately I won't have the time to finish it, so anyway here it is:

I wish everybody all the best in 2006. May we be good to each other.
The only wish I have for myself is to be in good health. I know if I work hard enough and give my best the rest will come along.

The letters on the flag are an abreviation of Happy New Year in Bulgarian: Честита Нова Година - ЧНГ.

Finally, this is a study of a head by J.S. Sargent. He's one of my favourite artists. It was done in ~50 minutes. Something like a speed paint from reference:

You might call it a painting, as far as speed is concerned...
