The Moon by situo The Moon by situo

The Moon

The moon was but a chin of gold
A night or two ago,
And now she turns her perfect face
Upon the world below.

Her forehead is of amplest blond;
Her cheek like beryl stone;
Her eye unto the summer dew
The likest I have known.

Her lips of amber never part;
But what must be the smile
Upon her friend she could bestow
Were such her silver will!

And what a privilege to be
But the remotest star!
For certainly her way might pass
Beside your twinkling door.
Her bonnet is the firmament,
The universe her shoe,
The stars the trinkets at her belt,
Her dimities of blue.

~Emily Dickinson

11"x15"

Watercolor and acrylic

part of a series :)


btw, does anyone know what this "open format" category is for portraits?

Edit: I really need to stop messing with my paintings after they're posted on DA

haha and that lovely streak of blue is the glare from the window...though I would love to go back and put the blue in paint...

I love this image. Your moon picture really touched parts of me that regular beer can't even reach, and it even inspired me to create a moon pic also.

Talking of lovely streaks of blue. I painted my moon pic at a size my scanner couldn't cope with. So I had to take photos too. Those streaks of light are freaks of blight aren't they. I photographed it outdoors in the end.

I digress, your moon is magnificent and it really did inspire me. I just wanted to share that with you as you were partly responsible for its genesis. Big Love.

Thanks pumpkin. You should become one of those inspirational speakers, or in your case an inspirational artster, inspiring those lesser blessed mortals with your sunshine, loveliness and talent. Thanks for the Dream Guardian favouritism too.

Peace to you and your kin Situo.
