30 x 40 inches
acrylic and mixed media on gallery wrap canvas
This is one of a series of Moon Paintings I did exploring the different ways in which we think of the moon. From the earliest civilizations, man realized that the moon had cycles in which it appeared as full, half and crescent; waxing and waning. Observation of the connections and patterns of the sun, the moon and the stars of the the night sky yielded a breakthrough of knowledge that gave these early societies the tools to develop a calendar that assisted them in calculating time, seasons and navigational aids.
