Under the Crescent Moon, 2022
I learned that the crescent moon which looks like the proper letter C, (not backwards), is the "Crone Moon", or the waning moon. This is the one nearing the end of the cycle before it goes dark and then comes back. I thought it fitting that she is in the sky here over the land in this seasonal landsape when the flora begins to look overgrown and setting seeds for next year.

Avoid permanent display in direct sunlight. Clean glass with a dry cloth. If using a cleaner, spray the cloth instead of the glass to avoid damaging the matting and artwork.
I ship my artwork in clean, repurposed cardboard and packing marterials whenever I can. This means you will find bubble wrap that I choose not to throw away, and silly looking boxes on occasion. There's no harm in that. The most important thing in our transaction is that your art arrives in great condition. I do ask that you repurpose my materials if you are able as well.
Thank you for your interest in my work!
