Night of the Cold Moon, 12×12. This painting honors the pale light shed by the December full moon, the Cold Moon. It marks the dark time of the year, a period of quiet and introspection. Painted with acrylic and earthen material, including natural pigment, limestone and soil. I included cedar ash to symbolize eternity amid trials, as cedars are the prairie’s evergreen. This piece is on its way to a collector in Oklahoma.
