Luna Pearl


This is my entry for the Take A Word challenge this week where the chosen word is "Moon".
I have always been a follower of the moon's phases and cycles. The progression of the waxing and waning; coming full circle and then to start over again gives a lovely rhythm to our days. Nature makes sense to me. There is a definitive connection to how our natural world works in relation to our inner lives. Amidst the profusion of high technology and broad communications we still are driven by the inner clock, the seasons, the pull of the moon and it's phases whether we recognize it or not.
Credits for this digital collage go to Dover, Holliewood at deviantartscraps, and wikimedia. All imagery blended and artistic filters added in Photoshop.

  5. She's beautiful. I agree with you about nature. Like it or not, we are driven by it as humans. The wings are mysterious and beautiful surrounding the face.

  6. What a wonderful tribute to Luna, Moon, Goddess or however you refer to her, your art is always blessed with a story if only one looks close enough and lingers long enough.

  24. Lori, I can see that the Moon has really been a source of inspiration for you - your collage is full of wonderful details! And what you say in your text is so true - nature does effect us, wether we want or not, and I think that is very fascinating, too.

  33. I am so sorry I missed this when you first posted it. I have been so busy, but now can breathe a bit and visit. I'm especially drawn to the phases of the moon, which you show in this piece. Like you, I agree that the moon influences our inner clocks, our cycles. This is one special piece.
