Artistic Advent: Christmas Morn

Today's Advent artwork is dedicated to sodanyc, who sent me a wonderfully eclectic mix CD and a pretty holiday card! Thanks!

If you've read Underwoods by Robert Louis Stevenson, you may recognize the name Will H. Low; Stevenson dedicated one of the poems in that volume to him, and another to his wife. Low and Stevenson were good friends, and Low was one of the founding members of the Stevenson Society of America.
