Calm Night

- by Sara Burrier

This week's theme: Winter Night

This week, those of us in the Northern Hemisphere will pass the longest night of the year. The Winter Solstice has been marked and celebrated by mankind farther back than any history written or oral, goes. In the cold, dark of the winter, we look forward to the warmth and light that will return as the cycle of the seasons, and of life, continue their inexorable revolution.

I always love a challenge, and while illustrating for this book I really got a real taste for it! Especially in this piece. I pushed myself for a perspective I typically wouldn't do. I need to work more on creating interesting perspectives, hard to be a children's book illustrator and not have an interesting point of view. I also pushed to hold myself back from over working this piece. I wanted it to feel peaceful, full of rest, and quiet.
