The Moon


My take on Mucha’s “Moon” – for the 78 Tarot “Mythical” project.  Seventy-eight different artists are participating, each illustrating a card, and my assignment was for “The Moon.” If you are a fan of the past centuries’ art nouveau movement, you will recognize the primary figure as being a riff on Alphonse Mucha’s “Moon and Stars” series. Obviously I work in a very different medium, hehe, but I wanted to specifically reference that imagery in this painting. Being a “Mythic” deck, each card is supposed to incorporate well-known gods/goddesses/mythological figures – and since I had The Moon I wanted to evoke Luna/Selene in my piece.
We were also supposed to reference traditional tarot imagery so that our cards are recognizable to readers, and I’ve incorporated a couple of wolves/dogs and the two pillars (as well as the crawdad, lol) from the Rider-Waite deck, and as a nod to the early Flemish Tarot I’m giving the female figure a distaff (as in spinning wool) in her hand. The Moon card is often associated with Diana/Artemis, so I particularly wanted to feature a wolf or two!
I also wanted to give a nod to the “stars” – if you look at the glowing bits around her, you’ll see they just almost seem to make up a dipper constellation….
The original painting has sold, but we have prints & canvases available on my website.  The 78 Tarot “Mythical” deck should go into production at some point in 2018.

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with Canon Lucia archival inks and signed ON THE BACK by ME, the artist. Small prints are printed on 8.5×11″ sheets and large prints on 13×19″ sheets, but the printed area will reflect the odd dimensions of the painting itself. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.

Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvas Prints

Limited Edition Hand-Embellished canvas prints are as close as you can get to owning one of my original pieces. These prints are made on canvas with Canon Lucia archival inks. They are hand-embellished with additional details by ME, the artist, in acrylic paints. Each print is unique! All prints are signed and numbered (on the front and back), stretched over a frame and shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. Once all 25 Limited Edition Canvases have been sold, no more will be made, so get them while you can!
