January 2020’s calendar at is a digital drawing entitled, The Birds Have Food and Shelter. It’s a self soothing kind of image that shows two birds, who are out in the wild under the stars. They are close to their food and shelter. Night can be a dark and cold time and for those of us in the northern hemisphere, it’s particularly cold outside. This fundamental image of birds, a winged animal associated with spirit and angles, reminds us that everything we need is close at hand.
“Because the birdsong might be pretty,https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/winter
But it’s not for you they sing,
And if you think my winter is too cold,
You don’t deserve my spring.”
― Erin Hanson
I look forward to turning the page on my calendar to see the new artwork each month. Because I love this ritual so much, I’ve added it to my creative practice and change out the art on my digital devices too. It’s an opportunity to clean out the desktops and make everything nice for the start of a new month. If you like my artwork, and would like a reminder, I offer a monthly email so you can subscribe.
