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
In August we have both Lughnasadh/Lammas and the full moon. I've kind of switch July and August a little as I painted a whale last month for the buck moon and a deer this month for the sturgeon full moon! However, I wanted to paint a little roe deer hopping through thr golden corn fields at night which I feel is a common scene that must happen so often unbeknownest to us all and rarely ever observed by humans.
Lughnasadh or Lughnasa is a Gaelic festival marking the beginning of the harvest season. Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. In Modern Irish it is called Lúnasa, in Scottish Gaelic: Lùnastal, and in Manx: Luanistyn. Traditionally it is held on 1 August, or about halfway between the summer solstice and autumn equinox. In recent centuries some of the celebrations have been shifted to the Sunday nearest this date. In late August, we celebrate the beginning of the Corn Moon. This moon phase is also known as the Barley Moon, and carries on the associations of grain and rebirth that we saw a couple of weeks earlier, at Lammastide.
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.
