Following the theme of the birds in “The 12 Days of Christmas” (the dozen days leading up to Epiphany on January 6, by the way), we’re down to those three French hens. Those three mysterious French hens – players, as are we all – in their own movie. In this case, it’s that 1962 classique, “The 400 Pecks” by Francois Clucquot.
A little more on the 12 days of Christmas, from crivoice.com:
The Twelve Days of Christmas is probably the most misunderstood part of the church year among Christians who are not part of liturgical church traditions. Contrary to much popular belief, these are not the twelve days before Christmas, but in most of the Western Church are the twelve days from Christmas until the beginning of Epiphany (January 6th; the 12 days count from December 25th until January 5th). In some traditions, the first day of Christmas begins on the evening of December 25th with the following day considered the First Day of Christmas (December 26th). In these traditions, the twelve days begin December 26 and include Epiphany on January 6.
I’m doing 30 original works this month. The theme for December is birds. All kinds of birds.
30 original pieces, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new one. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.
Last month’s theme was food and drink, this month it’s birds. Any other themes you’d suggest?
