Day 358

Art journal, watercolour.

After I posted the Christmas tree on Day 354, my dad (John) sent me a message:

"Did you know that the peace symbol was originally developed by Bertrand Russell to signify nuclear disarmament? The vertical line at the top is the semaphore signal for D and the two diagonal lines at the bottom are N. It was used in the first peace march against nuclear arms in Britain in the 1950s."

That was just a few days ago, before the latest developments in Trumpland. 

I guess the symbol is even more relevant now.
