3775 – Winter Solstice

3775 –  Winter Solstice Acrylic on Canvas 10 x 8 inches Unframed The word solstice is derived from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still) because at the solstices the Sun’s declination appears to ‘stand still’. According to Forever Conscious, “The winter solstice celebrates the longest hours of darkness or the rebirth of the sun and is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal and self-reflection.
