Sacred Trees, Wise Elders of the Celtic Landscape
Elder trees with their gnarly, striped bark have such a special atmosphere about them. The play on words calling them wise, old Elders seems to fit like a glove. In passing them and sharing ones trouble somehow an Elders' wise words might come through to a keen ear. In summer I like making Elderflower cordial, just like my mother taught me. In this painting, the full moon was rising and curlews flying overhead creating a truly magical experience not uncommon here in West Cornwall, land of myth and legend.
