Three sandhill cranes are flying across this minuscule moon, golden-yellow and full like a proper autumn moon should be.
After June’s Harvest Moon painting, a patron suggested I try another on black paper instead of white. It’s a very different process, and the results have a darker, more solid quality.
The stars have a little shine to them, a hint of gold to add sparkle. The cranes have a little complexity in their color, both from the Payne’s grey and the way the thick, opaque Japanese paints mix into the top layer.
Above, you can see a close-up of the cranes and the textural surface of the moon. Below, the painting is in a frame, waiting to fly to its new home.

Through the haze of smoke and destruction, a sun faintly glows with the softest sheen of gold. Below, fantastic buildings are shattered, battered, burnt, and broken.
Another set of painted ruins joins the series of apocalyptic visions. This one is small, the size of a postcard. The sky is the color of sunset on a day full of pollution in the city, smog that dulls vision and steals the color and life from the landscape.
The title is, of course, from a song by The Police.
Above, you can see the smoking city up close, its futuristic shapes shattered and ruined. Below, the piece is in its frame, small in size but powerful in scope.

Next week the Floating Gallery will be back! Until then, you have this to tide you over, a little sketchbook drawing that I thought would make a very cool tattoo. I’ve been earwormed by Bastille all month for some reason, because my brain thought it’d be a great time to get into a 4-year-old Britpop album, but what can you do?
Draw skulls in paper crowns, that’s what.
I was considering making a card or print of this, what do you think?

My patient Patreon supporters have sketches! They’re all pretty bad about asking for them, lol, but I love every person anyway since that makes it easier for me to go above and beyond when the mood strikes.
From left to right, we have:
- “storage units DOOM” for Jeff
- Bitty from OMGCP for Grace
- Matt from Swan Song for Corinne
- and on the bottom, dark and gloomy and fiery for Springbok
Want one of your own? Become a patron!
