The Other New Moon Spread…

A couple of days ago, I mentioned a second New Moon spread…this seems to be happening more and more lately–more than one spread or piece of art…

It really is quite as if I put all the time and effort into saying, Hey, Universe, here is what I am wishing and praying for…and then the second spread –well, maybe it is the Universe speaking to me through the paint…or maybe it is my way of opening up that space to receive the message from the Universe…

I am not sure which…sometimes maybe it is one or the other–sometimes it is one or the other…and sometimes maybe it is something else entirely…maybe sometimes I just need more space to work through the next layer of whatever it is I brought to the page to work with.

Either way…

Here is that sister spread for this past New Moon.

She was so interesting to work on…I know it is hard to tell from the picture…what with it not really being incredibly clear when you are staring at this piece in person…but there are three dandelion puffs on the right side (as you look at it)…they are the actual focus of the piece.

The face, she is just gravy, but she was fun.  I worked on those darn dandelions too, layers of paint, layers of little dashes.  Lol…the original thought was to have the individual little spores, just a few of them, floating away…but on this background those spores would have been completely lost.

I sketched the face in after the dandelions were done, because there is a story there.  I am working through an on-going dialogue via Maya Zaido‘s Soul-Led Journaling Class…which I absolutely and whole-heartedly recommend — and the dandelions are part of some imagery that keeps coming up…

The face, she started with a black stabilo marks all pencil…the message I kept getting from her was, keep it so simple, keep it so simple…so the colors that are there in the face…all Caran D’Ache neocolor ! wax crayons–and yep, I bought them on purpose so I could play with them at the same time I bought some Caran D’Ache neocolor II water-soluble crayons.  I love both of them.  They just do different jobs.

What I so love with the work I am doing lately is the conversation that goes on after the painting is done.  I have been used to the conversation that happens during the painting process.  Harkening to the one that happens afterwards is new for me.   I like it.
