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.

Swirls and whorls and spirals decorate this beautiful turquoise abstract. The shining texture of the overarching spiral gives it a dragon-like feeling, with its copper eye and snakelike head at the center.
The detail photo has perhaps the best color, but like so many things in life this one has to be seen live to be properly appreciated.
One patron said, “Oh, it’s another Moana painting!” and while they’re not wrong, this one has more of a sly, sideways reference, bursts of shining heat within the ocean’s cool blues rather than a direct quote.
Above, you can see the sun shining off the iridescent paints, bringing out the coppery and turqouise tones. Below, the painting is framed and waiting to bring something shiny into your day.

Another rare alternate color scheme Pokemon commission for Sekrit Patron! This time we went for double the loveliness of this pretty dragon type with the normal blue and “shiny” pink twined together in draconic curiosity, if not love.
