The RideQuick Note: My Holiday Sale continues. Memberships and Renewals are 25% off until Christmas. Gift Certificates (email) are discounted as well!

A company in the UK called “Art in Design” has been licensing my Christmas/Winter artwork for the past 4 or 5 years now. This spring they inquired about using “The Ride (2009)” but asked that I make a few changes to make it useful for print. I brightened the scene significantly and made Santa’s sleigh a bit larger. Normally I don’t like to make changes to my work but I’ve had a pretty good relationship with these folks.

I posted the brighter version, without Santa, earlier this year as “Wintermoon“. This morning I added the Christmas Card render (with Santa) to the Pickle Jar. Which version (lighter or darker) do you prefer?
