Sunset in Sewanee

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”  -Roald Dahl

Mistletoe

Mistletoe, 3x9", oil on canvas, $325

Revered by the Celts (who are said to have harvested it by moonlight with a golden scythe), mistletoe is associated with modern Christmas celebrations. Although it is poisonous to humans and pets, mistletoe is an important winter food source and habitat for birds and increases biodiversity in the habitats of the host plant.
