|Lenten Moon |
Image size 9" x 12" acrylic on paper
The above piece is based on a quick glance out of my window that I took the other morning. The moon was quite full and just in passing, the morning sky was a sort of bluish/lavender/gray. I simplified everything down to straight horizontal shapes to represent hills, ground and the base of the sky at the horizon. I love that the moon shape is smack dab in the middle of things. Who says that you can't do that?
The title of the piece is the actual name of the moon that appeared around March 5-6. It's a Lenten moon, so called by early Christians because it appeared in the time of Lent. It also goes by the name of Worm Moon which didn't seem so great for a title.
OK, hope everyone is having a good week so far. Beautiful weather here with a chance of sprinkles later this week. Not much but it is something.
