Moon/Lunar

mmm-moon-marie

This week the very talented Marie returns with another challenge for us – moon/lunar.  Marie created this wonderful piece for us, and this is what she said:  I was inspired to create this picture by an old song “Paper Moon”.  (“It’s only a paper moon, sailing over a cardboard sea.  Yes. it’s only a canvas sky hanging over a muslin tree.”  – The punchline is “And it wouldn’t be make-believe if you believed in me”).  So, your challenge is to make a piece using the theme “moon/lunar” – you can opt for a paper moon like Marie, or interpret the theme in whichever way you like!  Have fun!

  3. Hi all

    First time I’ve played in yonks. I’ve just recently finished a painting, which I titled, she turned her face to the sun. However you could interpret it as the moon behind her head 🙂
