I stepped outside shortly after it got dark tonight. There, above me, just barely peeking through a gap in heavy cloud cover was the moon. It looked full, though I know technically it isn’t. It wouldn’t be so high in the sky at about 6:30 p.m. if it was full. Who cares! I pause and enjoy the moon whether it is a sliver, a peek, or full blown glorious. All too often at this time of year I get no chance to see it because of the cloud cover.
This one inspired me to grab a sheet of watercolor paper and capture it. I wasn’t getting the blacks as black as I wanted ... so I added a ink to the darkest clouds.
