One of the wonderful qualities of winter (in parts of the world that undergo a significant change of seasons) is along with the snow and the cold, is the quiet. I painted this moon recently to see how bright color would read on the well-known bright white sphere. Even with the loud phthalo blue and magenta, the familiar round face rests in the dark sky as silently as ever. The moon is essential to our planet for gravitational balance, soothing the tides, keeping days 24 hours, providing navigation for sailors & insects, and likely more than we are fully aware. Whether visible as a nail-clipped crescent, split in half, or full as above, the moon loyally remains the most present, calming companion in our night sky. When given a moment’s thought, she can be a source for appreciating a re-enchantment with our world, just as it is.
