Celebrating  The Summer Solstice and the New Moon in Capricorn at 12:25pm here on the East Coast of Australia
This is a good day for focusing intent concerning work related goals for the New Year
I did this painting for our xmas card in the middle of packing up & moving here 6 years ago
here’s Ariel on December 1st 2008, our first day in this beautiful old lady of a house enjoying the sun on my workbench

ceiling-and-wall-repair just needs a few delicately painted spider webs to complete “the ruins of Detroit” feel & I will have my bench back under the window by Xmas Day!

  1. Summer Solstice Greetings from Winter Solstice land . Love your picture Mo… and the beautiful repairs you have made. Here is to both you and Ariel back to enjoying the sun on your workbench by Christmas. Love and Merry Seasonal Wishes and Gratefulness to You.

    Happy solstice Mo !
    Great to see the repairs going … so you have your favourite spot back 😉
    All the best for xmas and the new year !

  4. your card illustration is SO gorgoeus, Mo! I wish you a blessed solstice, and hope you get your work table back in place soon!

      It’s a favourite illustration because it reminds me that no matter how weird and upside down the world gets, even in the upheaval of moving house, there is always time to draw & make art. I have never seen a Boab tree in real life, they are native to The Kimberley, a remote tropical savannah region in the Far North West of Western Australia so for now they live in my dreams but one day in the not too faraway (x fingers) we will meet in real life!

    Boab trees are so wonderful- your illustration captures its magnificence. I hope your repairs are complete for Christmas so you can be dry whilst dreaming! Happy solstice, Mo!

  6. Dana says:

    Also wishing you Happy Solstice here on the acme of time. Your illustration beautifully expresses the light/dark dichotomy of Earth’s ancient round. Aren’t boabs among the world’s oldest trees?
    I’m looking forward to your progress on Old Man Crow. Its going to be so great.

    • Mo Crow says:

      The Boabs of Australia and Baobabs of Africa are amongst the oldest flowering trees, the legends say they are the mother of all trees, I really want the definitive book published in 2008 “The Baobabs: Pachycauls of Africa, Madagascar and Australia” perhaps it will be the reward for finishing The illustrated lyrics of Old Man Crow next year!

    Happy Solstice Mo.

    Wishing you much light!

  9. What a fine balance to be thinking of Summer as we plunge into Winter here in North America! I think you will appreciate this complex poem for the solstice as it speculates on Persephone’s journey Mo–

    This, Yes. Just what is NEEDED and i am so excited that your work is at this oh so
    close point of going back to see it in It’s Whole…..

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Grace))) love this in between space in the year, the celebration of clearing, mending & letting go of the old year to welcome in the new & oh yes getting so very excited about seeing all the crow drawings again on the first of January!

  11. happy solstice
    winter and summer
    light and dark
    balance is important
    you are such a wonderful beautiful woman
