Christmas 2001: Mistletoe

Artwork details: gouache, 7 x 10 inches (18 x 25 cm), 2001.

Poor old Satan, there he is, with all of Hell to organize, and a bloke ought to be able to have a sit-down with a nice glass of wine after a heavy day of persecution and torturing the damned... and the bloody Serpent comes up with a twig of mistletoe and a big cheesy grin and wants a kiss! And all the bloody imps and devils around are busy wrapping presents and hanging up Christmas decorations, too. I mean, you'd think being damned for all eternity would at least get you out of Christmas, but no! all the bloody relatives are probably coming for dinner, too. And there's be Gabriel looking all smug and superior as usual, and there'll probably be another fight over who's fault it was. And Satan will get the blame as usual. Honestly, it's enough to turn a bloke to evil ways just thinking about it...
