STRAWBERRY MOON !

STRAWBERRY MOON

The Strawberry Moon (or the Rose Moon as is sometimes called in Europe) appears this year on the 4th of June.

This month’s full moon gets its name because June’s full moon coincides with the strawberry harvest.

 

 

When I first discovered the name of this full Moon, it inspired me to paint. I started to think about my palette and so I turned to the colors of crushed fresh strawberries, the green foliage and the creamy white flowers of the strawberry plant.

I also got to thinking about Devon cream tea with home-made strawberry jam and rich clotted Devon cream piled high on freshly baked crumbly scones!…….Okay, I digress but it was this palette that formed the idea for a painting that I called

 

‘Dreams of Strawberry Moon’

The original oil on canvas of Dreams of Strawberry Moon is available to purchase as well as many print formats including greeting cards here.
