Solstice Greetings

So here we are again on the shortest day of the year and at the start of the new solar year. The Norse people celebrate Yule at this point in the year and look forward to the rebirth of the sun. I am also looking forward to those lengthening days again and that bit extra light and warmth to help me through the winter.

The painting is a watercolour I did quite a few years ago as a festive card illustration.
