Acrylic on 24×36canvas.
This painting will be the first in my new series of solstices and equinoxes for the year ahead.I have done 2 years before ,and will do this as a reminder to the number of years I have been Painting .I am beginning my third year ,I thought it was a good way to mark this voyage into painting and maybe mark my progression.
Solstice events began over 10,000 years ago.In Ireland there is the New grange solar observatory ,5000 years old that lights up at dawn on the winter solstice. It is marking the rebirth of the sun,s return.There are many festivals of renewal around the world at this time of the year.WINTER SOLSTICE
The land all around is cold and dark,
Freezing,silent ,grey ,blue,shades of night.
A small glimmer of golden light,
Breaks through the darkness, creating HOPE.
There in the crack ,that shaft of bright,
Emerges from the edges to shine for all.
Returned to Earth the warmth of the sun.
Rebirth now possible,
Rejoicing, heard across the land.
Hail to the sun the warmth returns.
A grand rebirthing cycle occurs! by eoconnor
