Oil on canvas, 50cm x 50cm
Looking for the solid
trying to pay attention to the spaces between the features.
In this northern hemisphere
these are the dark days.
So we dress the trees in lights.
Reach back to magic childhoods our parents made for us
and strive to recreate those (false?) memories for new generations.
But time moves on.
We hold wakes for the old year
and wish each other better in the new.
