Advent: LOVE / AMOR

Sure Foundation is preparing for Christmas with the installation of Advent "candles" - one at a time, each Sunday - in our front windows. The second candle, LOVE / AMOR shines. 

The candles are made from transparent gels for theater lights. (With so many theaters in NYC, it was a fitting choice!) The words representing the meaning of each Advent candle are painted in both English and Spanish to be the "flame" and "halo." The transparent candles are resting on a "garland" of "pine boughs" cut from painted paper, set along the bottom of the windows.
