Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

Water-Color pencils

For the workshop about Candle Mass I need water-color pencils. It is for making a drawing of a ‘healing’ sun (for some bright, for others a sunset). Wells (water) and fire (sun) belong to the goddess Brigitte and to the season. Water and a warm sun are needed for the seeds to sprout and Brigitte is Goddes of healing. I need quite a few pencils. One of the boxes I use with pencils I use has been a present from my parents 38 years ago when we were on vacation in Switzerland. It is a Caran d’Ache box, from Switzerland. I always kept the box, but there were pencils lost. Today I searched our whole house for them and I found many of them back. Unbelievable! They really good pencils!
