Moon of the Water Bearer

Img 7723

Finished on the new moon in Aquarius (1.21.23) the fortuitous timing coincided with a gentle prairie snow, so I set the painting outside to receive the winter moisture, infused with nourishment and beginnings. It has stone texture, embedded grain, rust, and local limestone. My moon paintings are always a seasonal expression of what’s happening on the earth below. This moon mirrors the snow laden prairie where aqueous greens and blues hint of frozen lakes and fallow fields wishing to break free of winter, but not yet. This moon is for dreamers on the precipice of recalibrating and preparing to grow.
