The Time of Beltane
The ancient practice of honouring the land and taking part in fertility rituals took place at Beltane, the time when Spring was at its peak and Winter with its times of hardship and little food had receded. In this painting a Mother and Daughter make an offering of flowers in a landscape of verdant trees and hills. Such a pretty painting and Celia Roberts characters are imbued with a depth of feeling that draws the eye like no other.
