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

The oak moon falls in July and is symbolic of strength and security.  This painting depicts the trees of the legend of Gog & Magog -
In Somerset stand two very ancient oaks named Gog and Magog (reputedley named after the last male and female giants to roam Britain), which are said to be the last remnants of an oak-lined processional route up to Glastonbury Tor.
