Harvest Moon by Amy Crook

This painting, like several others, was done for the cover of the Starcycles Calendar (in this case for 2004). We wanted something simple with rich colors, though later on we added in an image of Thoth as a shadow on the golden harvest moon.

Harvest Moon, 10″x14″ oil painting on art board.

As the paints have aged, the once deep blue has taken on a really interesting sheen that only shows in certain lights, adding a really nice violet depth to the sky that contrasts well with the matte, earthy golds.

    You know, I’d never thought of paint age making a difference. But I can see how it would. As usual, it’s gorgeous, and you do great work. I feel like I should have a more productive comment, but I don’t.

    I guess there’s some benefit to hoarding all my art for many years — I get to see how it ages! If I’d sold it in 2004, I’d never know how cool this one could look. 😉
