Happy 2013!

'Rubens New Year' 20½"x18" charcoal on paper
I wish everyone a happy 2013. May all your endeavours succeed and may your happiness increase!

The image is a somewhat crude Rubens pastiche in charcoal... no particular reason for drawing it other that I felt like doing one.

As far as I know Rubens never actually did an image of Old Father Time and the New Year Child, but if he had, it would probably would look something like this (but with more finish, flying putti and symbols obviously).
