“Moon over Marsh” (12”X 12” acrylic on plywood) has just been purchased by the Town of Truro, N.S. It was created years ago during the months following the passing of my husband. At the time I tried to document the passing of time by painting the full moon each month.
There were months when I did not paint: December, April, May, and the summer months. Funny how dates embed themselves. I painted the Moons of January and February (’04), the blue moon of November (’03), the Hunter moon of October and the Harvest moon of September (’03). “Moon over Marsh” was created during the melting of winter when marsh grasses pressed themselves into heaves of tidal clay and fallen feathers of gulls.
