The Candle Of Hope.
Walking through the streets of Looe, Cornwall – the Christmas lights do look beautiful this year. Despite their flashing brightness – there is a jaded, less convinced feel about them.
A response to and from the Pandemic? A ‘do as we always do’ …but with some uncertainty? A little whisper of gossip, of trepidation. This year is unlike so many other years.
I like to see things from different angles. I am not saying it helps or it gives any insight. I am saying – I like to see things from different angles.
This is the lighting of the first advent candle. The candle of Hope.
And this is what I will call this picture, to be painted before Christmas day.
