Day 19! More lunar inspiration. This piece was created using blue paint tape to create the trees, a technique I teach which never fails to delight. The surprise at the end when the tape is removed is worth the wait every time! This piece also met my goal of 90% without paint brushes.
I spent a little time this morning researching what the heck is going on in the galaxy which is causing my need to paint moonlit scenes. To my delight, there are a couple of very cool things happening this month.
Beginning tomorrow just before sunrise, five planets will be in alignment in the morning sky, visible to the naked eye. This happens about once a decade, and is considered an event not to be missed by skywatchers around the world. I like the idea of things lining up above us, like it is a sign of things to come, everything lining up in life.
Then, starting Saturday, a full moon in Leo! Now why is this important to me? Well, firstly, I am a Leo (go big cats!) Secondly, Leo is a fire sign, full of love and creativity. This full moon is calling us to PLAY! To bring out our inner child and create, create, create! How perfect is that? The Leo full moon is telling us to live in a celebratory way, as if we already have everything we could ever dream of.
This moon is so positive, so full of creative energy and pure play, and it is coming during this 30 day challenge. It appears I've been channeling this moon for the last week, so it feels like my own personal full moon! You may find me in the moonlit yard this weekend, contemplating the universe and soaking up some lunar rays.
I wonder if you can get a moon burn?
Today's Adoption Event:
Sometimes art begins with a whisper...in this case, "Silent Harold" whispered to me from old photos of totem poles from the Pacific Northwest. This face was one of many on this particilar sculpture, but he called to me and asked to be painted. I think he is happy with the result, but how would I know? He never speaks!
"Silent Harold" - watercolor and ink on paper. Matted and framed behind glass, 14" x 12". Ready to quietly speak to you in ways only you can understand.
Adoption Fee: $25 (includes shipping) Contact Jen at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org to make adoption arrangements.
