Wolf Moon

Born deep in the crevice of the winter sky, the Wolf Moon is the first full moon of the new year, ushering in choice. It challenges us to persevere in the face of difficulty. I used handmade stone texture to sculpt a river of milky ice flowing around the moon to symbolize the progression of time. Acrylic with iron oxidized to rust indicates impermanence. Eastern red cedar ash represents eternity amid trials. Layers of paint, snowmelt, stone and earth pigment lend an appearance of fossilized limestone bathed under cold moonlight. 12×16 on birch cradleboard
