Framed 12×16″ handcut design tribute to the Sturgeon Moon and August life.

Sturgeon Moon

The full moon of August is the Sturgeon Moon, named for the giant Sturgeon fish being caught in the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain in August.
This piece is a tribute to the Moon, to a hopeful return to listening to the natural world and its  many lessons and secrets.
This piece focuses on the seemingly endless fields and gardens of flowers. August is also highlighted by visits from the Hummingbird. Around this time the Hummingbird begins a migration South. Texas Hummingbird numbers skyrocket as the birds prepare for their epic flight across the Gulf of Mexico.
Normally the birds need nectar every 15 minutes to balance the energy they exert to fly. This journey across the gulf takes days of preparation for the birds, who double their weight from all nectar put out for them by lovely bird loving folks.
Full Moon names have been used by many cultures to describe the full moon throughout the year. Specifically, Native American tribes used moon phases and cycles to keep track of the seasons by giving a distinctive name to each recurring full moon, including the Flower Moon. The unique full moon names were used to identify the entire month during which each occurred.
Although many Native American tribes gave distinct names to the full moon, the most well known full moon names come from the Algonquin tribes who lived in the area of New England and westward to Lake Superior. The Algonquin tribes had perhaps the greatest effect on the early European settlers in America, and the settlers adopted the Native American habit of naming the full moons.
