On the SECOND Day of Christmas


For my Southern Hemisphere Art Friends - hi, how are you, did you have a lovely day yesterday? For my Northern Hemisphere readers – I hope you have a lovely Christmas SophieAnderson_TheTurtleDoveSmall Day today – MERRY CHRISTMAS & THANKS FOR BEING A PART OF MY ART WORLD

It IS Boxing Day here in Oz – but we explored the meaning of all of that quite thoroughly last year (look under Christmas & scroll down to last year's post on this if you'd like to read up about Boxing Day) So as promised yesterday  and as I said yesterday – I am going to spend the traditional 12 Days of Christmas this year – exploring their traditional meaning.  Today is the SECOND Day of Christmas – and My True Love (God) sent to me -TWO TURTLE DOVES.  They represent God's word to the world Old and New Testaments.  These books are here as a guide and life pattern – to tell us about history, as evidence of God's love for us and as a guide book for a successful life.  This gorgeous image above is free for you to use, I am sorry that it is not particularly high res. (so is best suited for ATC's or small prints)Doves-esbe The ones below, however, are quite hi-res and hopefully you will enjoy using them over & over.  The 'doves' page is from a Russian farming book & they colour up nicely with marker or a wash of acrylic glaze – or of course – MOONGLOW!!!!

Please leave a comment and a link on the day with the image of any of them you use and on January 14th I will draw a winner – to recieve one of my original pieces of artwork.
