What matters most during the holiday season? I believe Gentle understanding. Thorough our clouds of uncertainty and flow of mixed emotions a gentle smile of understanding helps us get through the day. It can reach where no material gifts can. Bringing a gentle warmth and quietness to our being. My artwork through the use of plaster, water colour and paint attempts to depict a gentle smile of understanding. The use of colour depicts our changing emotions and the underlying broken texture uncertainty of the future.
The matter most important during the holiday season is be open to and receptive to the winds of change. The holiday season is open to new experiences, reflection of the past year and hopes towards the new year to come from the holiday season. Only through change can we grow for ourselves, those around us and for what the world needs us to do and be for it.
This piece is focused on the inevitablity of change and how festive times opens us to new endeavours.

Life is busy. There are jobs to do, expectations to meet and time to keep. I get caught up in the daily grind to complete everything on that list. Yet if I was nearing the end of my life, like the holiday season, I'd take time to spend with my children who're growing up too fast. We often escape for a few hours mid-afternoon to head to our favourite beach, Mudjimba. Leaving our worries behind, we traverse the sand, listen to the ocean and feel the breeze on our skin. It's in these care-free moments that real connections are made.

What matters is the communication to listen, learn and enjoy beautiful company.
The Last Time We Were All Together
By Jennifer Nichols
'Family'...that's really it in a nutshell. This photograph is the last time we were all together. Two months later one of my children was gone...the sky had another star. However, life goes on and the holiday season is still a time for family and friends to come together and celebrate love and life.
Aerial Enigma is the result of the passion to travel across the beautiful and majestic shores of the world. A perfect vacation deserves a bit of traveling and there my artwork reflects the said theme.
