As this piece progressed on the canvas with layers of gold and gray, I started to see the surface of the moon. The crevices and textures seemed not-of-this-world, but of the face of the familiar orb we stare up at night after night.
I named this piece "Demilune" both because of the shape (waning crescent) and character of this painting. We are all affected by the energy of the moon and its phases. We're magnetically drawn to it.
I hope viewers who feel connected with the moon and its phases will enjoy the otherworldly energy of this painting. I hope viewers will connect with the various textures, the ridges, the shadows, and the crevices. I hope the viewers will enjoy the warm glow of the gold paint in the light, like the golden harvest moon in the sky.
