When I’m avoiding getting things done, I spend a lot of time staring to the east out of the big window in my living room. The other day the sky was this lovely fade right before sunset of a soft dusky purple just starting to reach up to encompass the endless blue sky. A few days later, I saw the moon, waxing and nearly full, hanging in the blue afternoon sky on my way home from errands. I put those two images together here into one quiet, subtle view.
Dusk Moon, 7″x5″ watercolor on paper.
Above, you can see the opaque white of the moon with its shadows taking on the color of the sky around it. Below, the painting is hanging out in its frame on a shelf in my living room, a little piece of dusk no matter the time of day.
