Luna Moth Moon

W14 6 15 Luna Moon Scan

A Luna Moth on the full moon,
painted because Heather Santos had a visit the other day.
My own reaction the first time I saw one was delight!

They look more like delicate birds than moths,
or friendly creatures from another planet.
As I was drawing this, last sketch of the day
(10 minutes, not including drying time between watercolor coats),
I also saw a Ganesha face!  See the elephant?

Happy Moonday!

    • I see so much more when I draw/paint anything . . . I know many critters have disguises to make them look bigger, or to distract from their heads, etc., but I had not noticed her eyes above trunks!

        Critters are fascinating when studied for the detail they use to disguise or intimidate. I would never have considered a moth beautiful until you made it so! The hue of green is lovely, and Elephants are a favorite so this is doubly pleasing.

    I see two elephants facing one another. Very evocative work. I love the textures and subtle colors.
