Would you give her a kiss under the mistletoe?

Under a sickle moon, with the snow silently drifting all around her, a daemon stands and waits for her next victim...or perhaps she is feeling particularly nice, since it's Christmas, and just wants someone to love.

This started out as a faery sitting on a bauble, but i couldn't get the legs right, so i made her standing. but then i didn't want to do my usual faery, so i gave her wolf/dragon feet...and some spidery wings, and a totally different picture evolved!

I wanted to reflect the more Pagan side to this time of year, mixed in with the traditional ideas of Christmas - the red dress and snow are the obvious ones. The mistletoe and sickle moon were reflections of the Pagan side of things, both items being sacred and central to the religion. And...daemons are just so cool, to be honest!
