In 1994 I was invited to be in a Christmas themed art show. We were asked to select a country and look up information on how that country celebrated Christmas.
First of all it is summer down there at Christmas. The beach is a popular place to be. There is "Caroling by Candlelight" on the beach. So, I focused on the candlelight tradition. Painting in an Aboriginal style, I used dots to capture the effect of light. This is a piece that sold.
