Blue Moon, a collage

In honor of the recent blue moon, here is my version! I began with an idea based it on a tiny painting (ACEO sized) that I did many, many years ago. The ACEO was an acrylic painting; this recent version is a collage. The original is pictured below; the larger version is to the right.

I began by covering the canvas with old encyclopedia pages, then tinted the whole thing blue. You’ll see several images from the encyclopedia pages – faces, fish, diagrams – peeking through. I love that.

The moon shapes were then defined by gluing pieces of magazine images, painted papers, and tissue around where I wanted the crescents.
