O is for Over the Moon

I notice that moon images have been appearing in lots of my work lately.

I am not exactly sure why, but it is a change from the suns and sunny compositions I was doing.

Then again, things feel dark these days and the moon is an excellent source of illumination.

And, of course this is also the time of the Super Moon, so maybe that is the explanation for this little piece which is part of the ten boards I have painted for the Big 500 show.

Like the others, I gessoed the board, layered with acrylic and topped with acrylic paint pens. It was a lot of fun to do - just letting myself add lines and dots and color as I pleased.
