This is my latest painting. I drew this at the time of the Solstice, but with one thing and another I only got around to painting it recently. I didn’t expect to paint such a vibrant background, but I suppose it ties in nicely with the idea behind the solstice – a new solar year. Anyway, it’s lovely to have some colour in january!

“The Winter Solstice takes place on or around December 21st. It marks the longest and darkest night of the year. This is a celebration of light and the rebirth of the Sun. Ancient rituals involved lighting huge bonfires to encourage the Sun to return to warm the cold earth once more.”
