The Yule Queen
acrylic and pastel on birch deep cradled panel
"My Yule piece is called "The Yule Queen". I wanted to paint an enchanted wintry scene for this one. I tried to make the Yule queen Otherworldly and fae like. The three wolves represent her inner guides at this time. They are howling loudly and ready to shelter and protect her in this dark and sometimes lonely time of the year. Yule is a time when the sun is reborn on the Winter Solstice as it begins it's journey closer to the earth again. Although it may be the darkest time of the year, it is also a time when hope for the coming harvest of the next year is planted inside of us again." - Tammy Mae Moon
