Rowan

ACRYLIC ON DEEP EDGED BOX CANVAS

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

The 'rowan moon' falls during February and is the moon of vision and astral travel, symbolised by the colours pink and gold.  The pagan festival of Imbol (meaning 'ewes milk') falls during this time.  The tree is said to protect against witchcraft and enchantment.
