Golden sunbeams and lilac shadows set this mood for this extraordinary art. The young mage and her owl companion are the only souls stirring in the winter woods. The longest night of the year has just ended, and the sky is vibrant with the returning light. Even the crystal in the mage's staff is glowing wildly, anticipating the flow of magic as the Winter Solstice arrives. The words "Yuletide Blessings" frame this enchanting scene.
