Art Journal — Moon Child

Most days rising before the crack of dawn, hearing the birds singing in the dark and seeing glimpes of the moon.  Continuing on the them of circles for the Art-JournalJourney challenge I created this moonlit page.  Moon Child…IMG_2314



Leftover work desk paper, acrylics, gesso, punched circles, gel pens and washi…..This child is glowing…Happy Weekend everyone.

    Definitely like your Moon Child, Corrine! But, I do have to say that *she* reminds me of myself in my early 20’s when every night I slept with brush rollers in my hair! Glad those days are gone! Keep “circling,” my friend. It suits you! Happy Mother’s Day!

    This is how I look when I wake up too early. Fantastic moon. Love the deep blue. Hope you’re hanging in there.

    Hi Corrine. This moon child is great ~ so happy and bright!! I love anything to do with the moon.
    I must have missed your post about moving to Maine. Wow! You sure have been doing a lot of hard work. I love that you post things as you move along. I hope you are healing well from your little accident with the wood beam. I have always wanted to visit Maine. Maybe someday. Been to Vermont on a New England vacation a long time ago. We need to do that again.

    Oh I didn’t know the moon had a child but I do now and she is very pretty. She looks as if she is asking a question.

    This work brings to mind a line from a Mary Oliver poem Sleeping in the Forest. The line is: All night I rose and fell
    as if in water
    grappling with a luminous doom.”

    I like it very much.
    I hope your leg is feeling better, not too bruised and sore.

    Glow your Moon Child does. And shine and sparkle, too. So is this a good hair day for her?

    Happy Mother’s Day from both Bleubeard and me!
