Lady in the moon

"Lady moon,Lady moon, where are you roving? Over the sea. Lady moon Lady moon,whom are you loving? All that love me." by Richard Monckton Milnes


Ever since I was a little girl,I never seen a man in the moon,I always seen a lady holding a baby. Who I believe to be mother mary holding baby Jesus. So the other night I was driving home with my daughter after picking her up from a play she had at her school and the moon was full and we started to talk about the moon and what she saw and she said the same thing but when we got home we sketched what each of us saw and it was alittle different from each other,hers is more like the one I painted above,which I saw too after looking again. Mine is more of a side view of Mary holding baby Jesus,she still can't see mine but I thought her vision of the lady in the moon was beautiful. It kinda makes me wonder what everybody else sees up there. My husband doesnt see anything. What about you what do you see?

I LOVE what you see, Buffy. And that was pretty neat that you and your daughter put down on paper what you saw to compare.
Next time the full moon is out and I can actually see it (we get alot of clouds :( I'm going to look to see what I can find!

I am going to make a point and look at the moon tonight with new eyes and see what I see. I love looking a clouds and finding shapes and animals and people. Hopefully we will have a clear night!
This is a beautiful painting.

This is wonderful Buffy and it got me to thinking. I love your painting, here, and your post along with it. I do see something when there's a full moon; I've always been told about the man in the moon and I'm so happy to read about your vision! The next time I can witness a full moon, here, I'm going to really study it. I want to see what you see! Happy Memorial Weekend! xxoo Marilyn

...and i just painted a little moon girl, something must be the air, eh? very sweet, buffy!
re: about the "colorful face", i used acrylic paints, only. like diane mentioned, it's hard not to over work these pieces, and this was one of the better ones, that i left alone...do some do some...they are truly fun! xo
