“May the gratitude in my heart kiss all the universe.” —Hafiz
Ahhh… the the sight of the full moon rising–especially when it’s low on the horizon in glowing golden hues–is one that inspires wonder and brings gratitude to my heart. I’ve always been in love with the moon and all of her mystery.
I just recently completed this painting “Moonrise” as a commission. The moon is believed to represent feminine energy, cycles of life, renewal, and illumination. In this painting, a glowing celestial body rises with symmetry amidst trees and twilight hues of purple and fuchsia. The colors of dusk bring a softness and whimsy, with twinkling stars shining in the distance. My hope is that when you view this painting you feel an inner calm that evokes stillness. And perhaps a sense of wonder and acceptance of the unanswered mysteries in life.
Whenever you look into the night sky, may you experience gratitude in your heart and beauty in all your surroundings.
