Briana Jamieson, Winter Glow ~ Candles, 2021

610 x 460mm
Oil on board, framed in Tasmanian oak 

Winter Glow is a series of oil paintings with accompanying poems, which dwell on glowing moments found in the depths of winter: fresh, sweet scented bulbs; crisp days with low sun and hazy skies; candlelit tables; plants growing on soft, sandy beaches; wide open fields bathed in light.

Candles

sometimes / when a special meal is cooked and guests are over / we light tall candles / stuck in glass bottles on our dining table / and eat dinner by candlelight / a banquet of plates of food / vases of flowers / and bowls of fruit / sharing feelings and stories over the glowing flames
