The November full moon was at apogee, the farthest distance in its orbit around Earth. That makes it appear to be the smallest full moon of 2012 for all of us here on Planet Earth. And as we are also going into the longest nights of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, last night was dark indeed.
My girl is on her path under the stark white moon in a black night sky on a 3" x 3" itty canvas. I'm thinking maybe she has a magpie guiding her -- strangely, I found this 2" feather on the living room floor yesterday and set it aside. After I painted these little mountain snow-caps, I remembered the feather had a snow-cap, too, and that made me pretty happy for some reason.
This is the 13th moon in my itty full-moon painting series. All 13 will be hung together, hopefully this weekend.
I'd love it if you would share your full moon art by leaving a link in the comments or emailing me a file!
And thanks for visiting here and happy weekending. xo
full moon making:
~Over at Ancient Cloth, Marie whispered a lovely full moon post.
~Deb at Bee Creative has a really great photo of the moon and Jupiter.
~Kathy, the Woodland Quilter, stitched a Full-Snow Moon cloth and began another unique winter wall-hanging (made from hands and feet!).
