I’ve been in love with the moon since I was a little girl. You’ll find that much of my art will have something to do with the moon. This piece was inspired by a Japanese Art lesson in the “A Year of Painting Course” I’m taking with the lovely Alena Hennessy. Following this painting, I had an idea for an “elemental goddess” series with each piece containing a woman embodying a particular element to remind us of our connection to nature.
I created this Moon Maiden with india ink and acrylic paint on wood. She is very powerful…quietly dreaming with moons and stars in her hair.
