Artwork: Making Moons

Moons are on my mind . . .  It’s Moonday, Monday!

I sketched a new line of moons and am painting them in watercolors, a departure from my India ink on shellac.  Starting with the waxing and waning crescent.  Waxing Crescent is sweet; unintentionally she looks like a period piece to me.

The Waning Crescent (below) was a bit over-worked so may redo her, but maybe not.  I think Waning Crescent looks like He.  We tend not to think about the waxing and waning crescent, and tend to think of THE Crescent Moon at the Waxing Crescent.  So many early rituals evolved around seeing that first slim light in the sky.
