It was not until I spoke with my brother last night that I realized the moon was full.  I begin to wonder if all my work with paper this week is lunar-inspired, especially this image of a full moon releasing translucent leaves  upon the autumn landscape. Originally I had conceived of placing a small bench upon this hill, with a person staring up at a rainbow around the moon, an attempt to visualize this old post.  But as I worked, I found myself appreciating the simplicity of just leaves raining down on the ground.

A full moon created from an old calendar of Tiffany stained glass seemed apropos given the enjoyment I’ve had this year in photographing stained glass windows at Trinity Church in Copley Square and elsewhere.

Perhaps the strangest work created this week (so far) is a watercolor moon rising above a landscape of Frost in leaves.  What do I mean? Well …

… the leaves clustered at the bottom of this painting, like the ones you can kick about beneath a tree that has loosed all of its foliage … those leaves were created from the beautiful words of Robert Frost in poems I copied from a book.  I simply wanted to see “frost on leaves.”  We’ll see what the rest of the week has to hold as the moon wanes. 😉
