Chickweed (stellaria media) is a plant rooted deep within antiquity, her soft white petals and sepals offering us one of the most protective symbols known to humantiy–the pentacle. Chickweed is also associated with the chicken, which is no surprise that we see our lovely flock family here with the plant. Chickweed comes to us as a quiet plant, her strength and power not something easy to see, but steadfast and determined. This painting was also inspired by the Pennsylvania Dutch tradition of hex signs–those lovely colorful protective signs found all over the eastern and central part of the state.
