Turning towards the sun

To celebrate our turning back towards the sun, I made this 'analemma' bookmark.

In the idealised picture, each point marks the position of the sun at midday above London on the first day of the month (January being 1 and so on).  The figure of eight is due to the elliptical path of the Earth about the sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis.

And below - rows of freshly made print triptychs basking in the homemade sunshine of the 'Apple Pie' painting.
