The Menagerie of Creatures in the Moonlight

The Moon is magical, the brightness and cycles of it can affect our moods and our behavior.

The animal and bird kingdom is especially affected by its rhythms.

The owl emotes a wide range of notices; the black bear slows down its activities: the red fox forages more easily under the light of the moon and the deer seems not to be impacted at all.

I am fascinated by these creatures as they are ever present in my surroundings.

The Moon in my encaustic painting is sprinkled with mica I have found locally and the night sky sparkles with gold leaf stars. 24×18 unframed $1500 SOLD
