Which partly is (at least it’s for me) The Celebration of the (Returning of the) Light after the Winter Solstice. For the ones all new to this concept, or otherwise Festivus adopters, here’s a bit of history about the early-early origin of all Christmas Celebrations:
Centuries before Christ early Europeans celebrated light and birth in the darkest days of winter. Many people rejoiced during the winter solstice, when the worst of the winter was behind them and they could look forward to longer days and extended hours of sunlight. In recognition of the return of the sun, fathers and sons would bring home large logs, which they would set on fire. The people would feast until the log burned out, which could take as many as 12 days….
Painting Sheep in Snow
A few years back the snow was so thick and it was cold for very long so even the sheep couldn’t find their own food. The farmer placed a mini shed with hay. I love to paint cows over sheep but here it got interesting because of the shed. The shortest day of the year lets the shade and light side remain the same for a very long time. Excellent for painting!
This week I’m sharing the various postcards I created with these Winter Paintings. Here’s the full size image of the third painting in the booklet:
