Blue Moon 5
Saturday, July 8th, 2017
Every painting in the Blue Moon series is vastly different, and in that much this one remains consistent with its predecessors.
Photos can’t do justice to the deep, rich teal and turquoise of the moon and sky here, the ink bringing a glowing clarity to the colors that just doesn’t come through on a monitor. Shining silver stars dot the sky around our big blue moon, and an osprey dives through the light on its way to get its unfortunate prey.
What are you saving for a blue moon?
Above, you can see the diving raptor close up, all the detail of beak and feather against the blue moon. Below, the painting is in a frame, resting up for its long journey home.
