34. Sunset & Full Moon Rise

Sunset, oil pastels on bamboo, 2009

I look at this piece nearly every day.  It’s a small card I mailed to myself from Croatia, and although it started just as a free-hand sketch piece (I was trying to capture that boundary layer between the blue-black of the horizon line against the deep red of a sunset), I captured the long shadows that accompany a full-moon rise (the moonrise we cannot see, only feel/intuit.)  It’s spooky,  and the spookiness I think derives from a deja vu feeling that I have been to this (imaginary) place before.
