Another fantastic idea for adding colourful rainbows to your windows for those to see on their daily walks.
I posted last week about the rainbows currently popping up in peoples windows to give thanks to those working during the Covid-19 lock down and how I love to see them when out.
This one is made of a stack of books in one of our neighbours windows. I had spotted it last week and then went looking for it again so I could photograph and make this sketch.
Just by a strange coincidence it happens to be World Book Day today also, which makes it doubly fantastic! I know for my children, now 9 years old that books are a huge part of their lives and especially at the moment they can provide an escape from the lock down.
Rainbows bring colour and hope to neighbours windows during the Covid-19 pandemic.
During the current Covid-19 lock down when everyone stays at home apart from our daily walk for exercise it is wonderful to see so many rainbows in peoples windows.
I think the rainbows in windows idea started as a fun game for children to spot the decorations on their daily walks but has now become a way of saying thank you to NHS staff and key workers who our going out to work, putting themselves at risk to look after those who need care.
When I am out on my walk with my family I know the colourful windows really lift our spirits during this strange time when a lot of what we take for granted, like seeing loved ones and having a day out are no longer possible.
I wanted to capture a few of these with my sketches and put them up on my virrtual window, for a lot more people to see. I will try and do a few more and I hope you like them and they make you smile 🙂
