Holiday, Lynn Cohen, Chanukah

I drew this for Everyday in December Challenge: "Gilded", however it's actually my grandmothers brass menorah. The coins are gold foil covered chocolates! The Jewish holiday of  Chanukah lasts for eight nights, the middle candle is called the "shamus" or helper, that is used to light the others. Tonight we lit three for the third night. My drawing should be posted on the eighth night of Chanukah. But enjoy it early!
