The first time that I painted
the Fisgard Lighthouse it was on location
and it was a cold but sunny wintery morning.
Since then I've painted a few more "Fisgards" on
different shapes and sizes of canvas, and oddly,
I've painted them all in the
months of December.
Each time that I paint the lighthouse it
ends up being balanced on a slightly higher rock
and the last two have had fences as safe boundaries as well.
I'm sure that by this time in December we can all relate to the
lighthouse and are feeling the need to rise high above it all with
our boundaries in tact. So, on Winter Solstice today,
as you celebrate the return of the light
may you all have a little time to yourself to
find your balance and enjoy the light
- high above it all.
Wishing you joy & light!
