My Mindful Moment series are 12 pieces that will directly fund my own therapy this year, I will be releasing a painting on the last day of each month that I've painted mindfully that will directly fund my own therapy and hopefully I can raise awareness of mental health issues, reduce the stigma and create some good conversations and support to others.
As I'm still having therapy I still need to raise funds to pay for this service (especially crucial currently with all that's going on in my life). So I've decided to continue the Mindful moment series but with a new theme! This series will follow closely with the seasons that we experience month to month here in the UK. This includes the full moon each month and its meanings, any wiccan/pagan sabbats from the wheel of the year and the correspondences they have. I hope to guide you through a full year of connecting back to nature and the meanings behind old traditions
This piece was inspired by Beltane and the flower full moon. May is a time where all of life is bursting with potent fertility and at Beltane the potential becomes conception.
Swans are associated with Beltane as well as flowers, love and fire! So I've painted some firey coloured wildflowers and given the Swan a glow from the morning sun. She sits on her eggs lovingly waiting for them to hatch, already full if fierce love, amd they full of potential.
I actually photographed her on Beltane itself and I wonder of her signets have hatched yet!
The painting is A5 sized, painted with vegan acrylic and watercolour paints on to sustainable bamboo paper and framed in a black made to measure frame (please note this frame has a slight nick in the side but is sold as seen - I don't think it effects the overall look). It will be sent next day delivery via DPD unless collection can be arranged.
