Apart from designing fashion, print and products, I can now add window display to my set of skills! Where I live in Oxford, we were asked to display a picture in our windows (with a Christmas / Advent / winter theme), as part of a live Advent Calendar.
Fortunantely, I already had a dove theme going on in my studio, see my blog from April, so I was able to use my screens again for this brilliant Idea.
So here they are hand printed, in white and silver, on black card;
'Twenty-four Doves on a Wreath'
"The show must go on."
"Be patient, your freedom will be back."
Doves, usually white in colour, represent purity, gentleness, devotion, beauty, and faith. They are used in many settings as symbols of love, hope, peace, freedom or as messengers.
Here in my window they are redefining freedom, magic and joy, beautifully photographed by my neighbour the talented Flavia Catena.
Let's all wish for a heavy dose of magic this Christmas and let's hope that 2021 will be filled with health, joy, love, plus all the other important things in life!
