Artists who venture into their gardens on a warm summer evening may find new inspiration. That is exactly what happened when I decided to take my camera out after the sun had set and the moon was shining over the pond, casting its shimmering rays on the drowsy blooms. Daisies, lilies and hydrangeas seem to smile in their sleep and with my camera set for night, the flower images twinkled in the lens.
“Moon Flowers,” is a 14 ¼ “ x 5 ½” watercolor paper, mixed media acrylic on cradle board. The tree glistens under the moonlight and the flowers glow as their petals cool from the stifling heat.
The original “Moon Flowers” has already sold – just one day after I posted this article! But select pieces of my original artwork are still available for purchase by clicking www.paperjewelsart.etsy.com link which will take you to my Etsy web store.
