ACRYLIC ON DEEP EDGED BOX CANVAS with metal leaf and glitter

60 x 60cm


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

The hawthorn moon falls in June and is the moon of disenchantment symbolised by the colour pink - which I have used for the petals of the blossoms. In pagan lore this tree is the one most likely to be inhabited or protected by the fairy folk.
