Moonstruck

My illustration is up at www.marblespark.com/blog/ And you can all do me a big favor by stopping by the link and voting for my art! I illustrated the poem, "Where Does Your Shadow Go At Night?" Written by John Carey. It gave me the chance to paint in black and white for the first time. And it gave me an excuse to paint yet another Moon. Moon's have been turning up in my art more and more lately. Hmmm. I wonder what that means. The shadows have a mind of their own in John's poem. So the one on the left I depicted holding a mysterious football. And the one on the right is the shadow of the innocent teddy bear. Except that he's stealing the young boy's shoe. I decided to have a little fun and paint the boy jumping on the bed instead of sleeping. I didn't want the shadows to be having ALL the fun!






Many Moons later.

I will vote for you and good luck. I can see a heart in the first moon and a paw in the second.

I like both the poem with its many questions and your lovely illustration of it. Good Luck with the voting!
