IF : Canned Lights


Luminarias! Punched tin lights.


Just a quick one this week folks, and later than usual too. I hope you enjoy the message of the song.


Have a wonderful week!

  1. You really captured the essence of the luminarias. Great job. (I grew up in New Mexico--one of my favorite parts of the holidays.)

  4. Oh, thank you for this! We go to Arizona once or twice a year, and every Christmas I love to look at these luminaries on the house walls. So serene and lovely. You did a beautiful job capturing them.

  21. Lovely illustration. The best light show we saw at the time of the Millennium after all the grand fireworks around the world, was a number of votive candles in jam jars along the tops of a small stone bridge in a Scottish village.
