This is #2 in the series of the monthly moons...using the medieval Book of Hours as my inspiration, as well as the naming of the moons by the Iroquois. This moon is the longest of the year. I tried to convey that darker than dark moon rising feeling. The bottom piece of blue stuff...they are cyanotypes. I got some sun paper and took oak leaves from a tree in my yard, that also supplied the Lomo colorsplash blue filtered oaks in the foreground.
I have some gold leaf. I am contemplating putting the medieval calendar style dial on the moon, and putting some gold leaf in the background, however that face is bugging me, and makes me think I had best move on to other works.
Happy New Year from upstate NY. At this point, the days are only getting longer and we can celebrate the onset of a new season.
