June’s flower in The Hare and The Moon is the wonderful scented honeysuckle.
‘Used for rope-making in the Bronze age and also known as Woodbine, honeybind, trumpet flowers, Irish vine, goat’s leaf, sweet suckle and fairy trumpets.’
Coming soon as a greeting card in this set of reprints and new:
The Song of Owls
Another wonderful blog piece by Terri Windling featuring the writing of Linda Hogan and my paintings.
‘Today on Myth & Moor: owls, and nests, and the homes we make, and the ways we connect to the living world’
“I didn’t know what kind of nest it was, or who had lived there. It didn’t matter. I thought of the remnants of our lives carried up the hill that way and turned into shelter. That night, resting inside the walls of our home, the world outside weighed so heavily against the thin wood of the house. The sloped roof was the only thing between us and the universe. Everything outside our wooden boundaries seemed so large. Filled with the night’s citizens, it all came alive. The world opened in the thickets of the dark. The wild grapes would soon ripen on the vines. The burrowing ones were emerging. Horned owls sat in treetops. Mice scurried here and there. Skunks, fox, the slow and holy porcupine, all were passing by this way. The young of the solitary bees were feeding on pollen in the dark. The whole world was a nest on its humble tilt, in the maze of the universe, holding us.”
This month’s print is ‘Across the flowering earth’.
This collection of paintings is joining in with the Instagram #artistsupportpledge – an initiative set up by @matthewburrowsstudio as a way of supporting artists at a time when there are no exhibiting opportunities. All artists taking part have pledged to sell their artwork for no more than £200.00 with many selling pieces for considerably less. Once an artist earns £1,000.00 from the sale of their artwork they pledge to spend £200.00 on art from others taking part in the #artistsupportpledge
I will also be donating 10% from the sale of each painting to the NHS via Just Giving appeal
