Rural Superstitions

A selection of original oil paintings by Laura Jewell. Inspired by lessons in The Old Farmer's Almanac and titled "Rural Superstitions and Astrology".

Artist Laura Jewell says of the Rural Superstitions and Astrology Series. "Recently I was given a copy the Farmer's Almanac guide that has been passed down through the family from my Great-Grandfather . My family for generations have worked their farms in accordance with the moon phases and signs. I am very interested in the way that farming for ages has been parts science, astrology and chance."
