Cheap Ways to Decorate Your Home with Evergreen for the Holidays

In her article Symbolism of Christmas Evergreens, Margaret Realy wrote, “Evergreens for early Christians symbolized everlasting life because their boughs stay green all year.” Today, evergreen is used in holiday decorating by individuals of many different faiths.

Joseph Mallord William Turner – Great Painter of Light

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775 – 1851) was a controversial English landscape painter. His eccentric style matched his subjects – shipwrecks, fires, natural catastrophes, as well as natural phenomena such as sunlight, storms, rain, and fog. The significance of light to Turner resembled God’s spirit. In his later paintings he concentrated on the play of light on water and the radiances of skies and fires, almost to an Impressionistic style. Segmation’s collection of Joseph Mallord William Turner patterns includes many examples of his style including The Fighting Temeraire, The Shipwreck of the Minotaur, Snow Storm, The Grand Canal, Peace – Burial at Sea, and Rain, Steam and Speed.
