Ash

ACRYLIC ON DEEP EDGED BOX CANVAS

30 x 60cm

 

Part of a series of paintings on the theme of 'trees of the pagan calendar' Ash was produced for Red Hen's Brighton May Festival exhibition 2006 'Yew & Others'. 

The ash moon is known as the 'moon of waters' and associated colours are cherry pink and amber.  This is the third moon of the pagan calendar and Valentines Day falls within it. 

In Irish folklore it is claimed that shadows from an ash tree damage crops, and in European folklore snakes are said to be repelled by ashleaves or a circle drawn by an ash branch.  The World Tree, Yggdrasil in Viking mythology is an ash.
