From my Agent, Tugeau 2:
"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a traditional English Christmas carol with French origins. It published in 1790 without music as a chant or rhyme. Its origins are largely unknown, but it's very probable it originated from a children's memory and forfeit game. 
Today's well-known melody is derived from a folk arrangement made at the turn of the century by English composer, Federic Austin. " 
The twelve days in the song are, traditionally, Christmas Day, December 25th, to the night before the Epiphany, January 5th.
But the T2 Team is singing and celebrating a bit early this year so as to share the lovely artwork of our illustrators on the anticipatory days leading up to Christmas...while everyone is still in the office :) Twelve spectacular artists have created artwork specifically for this celebration! Sing along with us...

I got the 5th day. Here's my portion:

On the Fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

I've  been a busy bee the past month readying myself for the final art show of the year. (finishing new paintings, making prints, packaging, etc).  I spent the day on Saturday, December 5th hocking my wares at the RISD Holiday Sale at the convention center in Providence. It was a decent day sales wise and I even sold my newest original painting, Hope Has a Place (above). I'm not sure  whether or not I will be applying for the show next year, but I'm glad I tried it since I hadn't participated or attended before. But I am looking forward to (hopefully) the spring and fall sales...
