I wished that I made the composition. I painted this from a print in the 1890's of my Grandfathers room in Beacon Hill while as a Unitarian Minister he wrote a book called Lighted Candles for the blind. Go figure. Victorian mentality. His name was Alfred DK Shurtleff and he is credited for starting the candles in the windows for Christmas since then. I don' t know if it' a fact , but it is a wonderful story anyway. Thank You Rick
