Fairy Tale of New York

It's that time of year, and between now and the big day, this song/video will be played constantly on the radio and TV. Despite that, it remains my favourite Christmas song. This painting tries to capture images from the lyrics - see how many you can work out. It also portrays the late lamented Kirsty MacColl, and the irrepressible Shane MacGowan.

Measuring 16ins by 12 ins, it is painted in acrylics on Daler Rowney 300 g/m2 NOT paper.
