Advent Artist Day 20

Hellebores (Christmas Rose) are found across Europe. One of the legends around them says that it emerged in the snow from the tears of a young girl who had no gift to give the baby Jesus in Bethlehem – hence their common name. This is today’s advent give away.

Advent Artist Day 20

Today’s Advent Artist is Val. My first forays into painting were a result of Val’s inspiration and enthusiasm. She only started painting quite late in life. Val loved her painting, joined in with other artists in the area, and created beautiful delicate watercolours.

Val’s funeral is today and I want to remember her joyfully for her lovely work as well as for her laughter and her go-ahead attitude. This is an opportunity to celebrate her love of art and in particular, painting.
