Harvest Moon

Oil on canvas, 2018

25cm W x 30cm H


The Harvest moon of September is the full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox, where the tilt of the earth creates a reflection in the atmosphere, resulting in a large bright colourful moon that illuminates the sky. This was embraced by farmers in ancient times, before the invention of electricity, that christened it the ‘Harvest Moon’, as it provided additional light during the harvesting of the last of the summer crops.
