Illustration Friday - Midsummer Night

Midsummer Night

6" x 8", acrylic

Bon fires are a Midsummer Night tradition all over the world and have been for thousands of years. I painted this in honor of Midsummer Night (and for IF), which is tonight according to some calendars. I imagine this to be an English country side somewhere a long, long time ago. The fires were to protect from the spirits thought to be present on this night.

So Happy Midsummer Night to all!

Awesome Illustration! Reminds me of Guy Fawkes night as well.
Happy Midsummer Night to All and remember, remember the gunpowder treason!
