Oak Moon

Oak Moon by Rebecca Hind

Artist Rebecca Hind has been visiting the OneOak tree regularly (see previous post).  She has braved freezing temperatures and long nights to watch the tree as it changes through the seasons and through the time of the day.

Rebecca’s most recent sketch show here was inspired by a full moon.

“Our most recent full moon. Not only did it fall on New Year’s Eve, it earned the title Blue Moon, being the second brimming of the month. Folklore grants each month’s full moon at least one name, often chosen according to local preoccupation. And for December the one which fits our tree is Oak Moon. That confluence was graced with crisp clarity and spangled with stellar brightness. A gift to a painter of night skies and the OneOak. Here is a first impression of that night last week, when the frost cracked underfoot and fell in sprinkles from the branches. ”
