Sorry this isn’t a more positive greeting to 2018, but it’s the best I could manage. But at least this little brushwork guy looks vaguely hopeful. The suggestion of background represents snow and deep cold, the round face could be the returning sun (come back soon!) and his deerlike aspect recalls the reindeer of the rapidly passing holiday season.
If you, like me, are very glad to see the back of 2017, my most sincere good wishes for the new year. And stay warm.
