In 1986 I began an art project based on a natural phenomena - the cyclical pattern of the Full Moon rising. Setting up on my downtown studio rooftop, I drew the rise of the Full Moon. What began as a one year project became a way of life. The following images are from various years ranging from 1986 to 2014.
The next Full Moon is January 1st in Cancer. It will be the first of the full moons in January, making the second January Full Moon on January 31st a Blue Moon. This Blue Moon will also have a Total Lunar Eclipse!
Most of these series are drawn with oil pastels and color pencil. The others are either photgraphs, digital drawings, soft pastels or collages.
