Waxing and Waning by Annmarie Lockhart
Inspiration piece

crescent moon
on a clear-sky night
she shines center stage
in front of a deep dark
velvet curtain with
a handful of stars
scattered like glitter
across midnight

a silvery sliver of
her full brazen self
she emanates light
weak and pale

she glows
but does not grab
she is beautiful
but subdued
she shows
but does not tell
she is eyecatching
but definitely not

    I love this painting, and it’s such a perfect match for the inspiration piece.

    This painting is a beautiful depiction of the three dimensional aspects of the moon’s surface.

    Thanks you two! It’s actually a digital piece made of all sorts of textures–velvet, mylar, watercolor strokes. Glad you liked it.
