Yule is the nineth painting from the Autumn Equinox & Mabon series.
Yule comes from a name for a 12-day festival, celebrated by Germanic peoples, around the winter solstice in December and January. During the twelve days of Yule, crops are harvested to make a meal, trees are decorated with pinecones, foliage, and candles and gifts are exchanged with love ones. A joyful time that was on my mind while making this painting.
Yule also carries associations with a farm animal. The Yule goat carried Father Christmas on his back and is a symbol of Christmas throughout Scandinavian countries.
yule can refer to both Christmas and the broader Christmas season, which can also be called yuletide (meaning Christmastime).
I hope this year we will get a real yule day surprise; heavy snow that falls just before nightfall.
Acrylic on canvas, 100cm x 100cm x 4cm.
Background to this series:
The summer of 2021 was coming to an end, the autumn equinox was approaching. On the autumn equinox the sun rises exactly in the east and sets exactly in the west.
Mabon is celebrated on the day of the autumnal equinox, this year on September 22. Mabon, it’s rituals, the autumn colours, the self-reflection and awareness that play an important role in Mabon, gave me a tremendous inspiration. Too much inspiration for just one painting, so it become a whole series of paintings.
My feelings in combination with colours and patterns that go with Mabon and autumn , I have put in a series of abstract paintings, each painting with its own inspirational background, but all related to this time of year.
