Moon Art for a Monday

Moonlight Path

Moonlight Path

Monday is the Moon’s day and since the Aquarian Solar Eclipse is fresh (occurring here at 2:55 am est), I thought a shout-out to Luna on her day was a good way to begin the week.

Drawing: Prismacolor oil, Rexel Derwent watercolour pencils (dry) on black paper; perpetrated by Jude Cowell, natal Moon in Pisces, Sun in Capricorn.

So now, for all of us who were born with Sun in Capricorn-Moon in Pisces:

Sun Cap-Moon Pisces (Earth-Water): scientist and poet; a pragmatic dreamer; an imaginative organizer; tough and tender; dependable but private; both practical and dreamy.

Self-reflection makes this combo serious and solemn at times but allows deep insight into others’ plights. A natural humanitarian with a penchant for mystery, this blend makes for one who isn’t always sure if she’s the cat’s meow or something the cat dragged in.

Quietly bringing order out of chaos is a talent (which astrologers recognize as a helpful trait!), and there’s a capacity to give form and substance to imagination.

Weaknesses include: fear of the unknown, a pathetic tendency to carry other people’s burdens, and a tendency to lose confidence through negative thought patterns.

The Sun Cap-Moon Pisces blend is shared natally by:

Benjamin Franklin (an astrologer, as you know), Paul Cezanne (one of my top 3 favorite Impressionists), Elvis Presley (well, as a kid I liked his music), J. Edgar Hoover (ee-euww!), Sandy Koufax (saw him play on TV watching baseball with my Dad), Ava Gardner (now there was a beauty), Keith Thomas (author of ‘Religion and the Decline of Magic’), and J. R. R. Tolkein (read ‘The Hobbit’ when it was brand new but couldn’t get through all of The Trilogy, it wore me out!  Sorry.)

Let’s hear a peep from Ben – here is one of the more practical bits of advice from Ben Franklin – it’s one of my favorites of his quotes:

‘Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of.’

And Astrology is what brings the element of Time to the table!

Images for Integration:

‘A wine collector uncorks a rare vintage to celebrate a success…A child builds a sandcastle of reinforced concrete…Bilbo in Tolkein’s ‘Lord of the Rings’…’Bathers in a Landscape’ by Cezanne…Elvis Presley’s ‘Blue Suede Shoes’. (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

The ‘sandcastle/reinforced concrete’ reminds me of his help in founding America, ya know? Ideal-idea of freedom into manifestation  and all that, with Uranus, planet of revolution and rebellion,  discovered in 1781 – between the American Revolution and the French Revolution.

So it was Uranus’ creative spark (Plato’s Ideal) poured into Saturnian form, circa 1776, and voila! a New Atlantis: America.

Well, thanks for taking a meander with me down a Moonlight Path on the  Moon’s Day. Hope you enjoyed yourself!

Chiffonery Art collaged with Mystical Art

moonbeam-lake-uncovered

Rather an oddish piece. A bit of a ‘Boudoir Blossom’ lady, a dancer type, but different.

It’s a copy of a drawing from the Summer Olympics 1996, Atlanta, GA., ‘Moonbeam Lake’ photographed small and collaged into a newer figure study for my 17+er art gallery at:

http://cosmicpersonadesigns.blogspot.com

Two drawings were accepted in a city exhibition, one of which was ‘Moonbeam Lake’ which was originally from a children’s book dummy I was putting together at the time, ‘Silvery Tree Path.’

So-named ‘shroom-homes figured into the tale as elfish abodes with fairies playing about unseen…hence my primary imprint 1995 to the present and beyond: Unscene World.

The lighted look in the drawing-as-painting that’s ‘hanging’ on the screen is achieved by embossing with an aluminum pencil – Prismacolor’s ‘Silver.’

And here’s a link to a partial view of the Great Lichen Forest where the Roscoe Woodhouse story ‘Silvery Tree Path’ plays out…

Update Saturday 2:53 pm est: a fresh image is uploaded of a new drawing, ‘ShroomHome on Silvery Tree Path’ which continues the elfin theme…

http://secretmoonart.blogspot.com/2008/12/shroomhome-on-silvery-tree-path.html

The drawing isn’t quite complete, but perhaps you may enjoy it all the same!

Plus, another note: the Adult Content Warning has been temporarily lifted for a day or so in order for crawling to take place…seems the Art Blog is about to be kicked off URLTrends due to inaccessibility.

Cosmic Persona Designs’  Content Warning for the 17+ers among us will be replaced very soon. The blog, is, however, only my Artwork – figure studies, designs really – no artsy photos on the premises, and none sought.

It’s Art for Art’s Sake with this apt hint:  CPD displays only a little Chiffonery Art…frothy and fun.

Fay on way

Tropical storm Fay has killed 4 people already and is on her way toward the Florida Straits and the Gulf of Mexico, and is set to sweep through Cuba first, they said on my TV.

Fay – or ‘Faye’ in my family! – is a faerie-esque name that I’ve always liked and have even used it for one of my archetypal drawings, Faye’s Magic Lamp. Not much magic in stormy Fay, however, and I wish all well who may find themselves in her path.

It does seem that bad weather follows eclipses and August has been replete with Solar and Lunar lunations, hasn’t it? And August, forever my least favorite month, isn’t over yet.

So here’s a small something for the 17+ers (which may be two out of three readers, as I realize daily – otherwise who keeps searching for the word, ‘weed’?)…anyway, you may have seen this drawing’s image on this very blog, but here’s the original publishment of Faye’s Magic Lamp:

Frisky Friday Art: late than never

Dora\'s Pink Shoe Envy

Yes, the friskiness has left the building in many time zones…translation: this drawing is being published quite late for Frisky Friday Art.

And it’s not as if I splash up one of my archetypal Chiffonery Art images every Friday, Venus’ day though it may be.

Still, I hope Dora (titled prior to my hearing of the children’s character, Dora)–I hope that this Dora and her primal emotions of material envy are of some small entertainment for you, Lone Viewer, because with the way the world is going, you could definitely use a smidge of mindless visual fluff.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
