A Candle at Christmas

In this lovely painting by Andrew Petrov, another Provence-based artist, the candle glows from within through a waxy cloud of soft greys and mauves. For all its softness, though, the flame burns bright and fierce. Intimate and meditative, the painting draws you in and holds you, and Time was away and somewhere else. (Meeting Point, Louis MacNeice.)

Joyeux Noël!
