Blue Moon


blue moon - acrylic - 12 by 20 inches -- unfinished.

For illustration friday's prompt - moon - a small painting which I have. "Once in a blue moon" has always been an idiom which appealed to me. A fun, image provoking twist on words. Of course Wallace and Grommit come to mind as well... Don't know if I will finish this piece, but it was fun to revisit it and think about it again.
July is almost over and I have been busy preparing for two upcoming shows, one in August and one in September, which my work will be part of. The first is an invitational group show with small drawings, 6x6 inches or less, here at the Salmon Falls Village Gallery in Rollinsford, NH:

I will most likely be attending so will share some photos with you after that time. Have a great weekend!

I think you should finish it, I really like the raw brush strokes as is though! For me the only thing I'd like to see is the moon a bit smaller, maybe not touching the edge of canvas, but I realize it's not finished so maybe my reaction is premature. Anyhow, great blog, thanks for sharing!
