Solstice

December 23, 2014

Twice now I’ve used this sunny theme in my art

The day after leaving that chalk drawing at my friend’s house I woke up and turned on NPR. Nothing but doom and gloom and it got to me. It left me with a sense of dread that I sensed was not going to be easily shaken. I pulled out a blank canvas and all I could see was darkness. The sun rays from the day before were still there, but they were covered in blacks and grays.

So I painted this to remind myself that the brightness still exists.

As the day went on I realized it was the winter solstice and latched on to it’s meaning as a way to understand the day’s icy cold tone.

Winter solstice marks the beginning of winter – the darkest day of the year. Sounds depressing if you stop there. But if you don’t stop there, you realize that from the darkest point – it can only get lighter.

Solstice
It only gets brighter from here.
