Christmas card take 1

Man! Where have I been? Trying to work the kinks out of an idea for a Christmas e-card, that's where. As usual, this is just the bare bones of a concept for a cozy little living room scene. When I was a kid, my Grandmother had an awesome aluminium tree, complete with color wheel. So this scene will be all the way retro, with a (hopefully) cool flagstone fireplace and corner window, Danish modern chairs, etc. Forget those turquoise and salmon walls, that's just to set the tree off for now. What gave me such a fit was trying to replicate (in 3-D) that distinct fuzziness and alien geometry of those old fake trees. It's not quite there yet so keep checking back (click on image to view full size.)
