The Moongazer

"The Moongazer"
acrylic on birch panel
5 x 7 inches, framed to 7 x 9 inches

The Moongazer appears at dusk, taking her place amongst the foxgloves and mushrooms, deep in the magic forest.  As she sits, staring, hypnotized by the heavenly orb, her horns glint in the light and her feathers twitch like her tail; as if with a mind of their own.  Her friends, the little mouse and two headed squirrel light a candle for her, and keep her company on her nightly ritual.  Upon the first rays of sunlight, the spell is broken, and the Moongazer disappears.  

"The Moongazer" will be a part of Modern Eden gallery's "Curiosities" show, opening August 17th in San Francisco.
