"Encircle" is the second piece I created from using this weeks inspiration photograph, "Winter Evening". I wanted to capture the cobalt blue color in this piece, as I did in, "Magic in the Air", and my focus was on the full moon being cradled by the tree branches.

This is one of three inspirational pieces I did for this week, however, I'm still in the midst of finishing up the third. The one thing I loved about the photograph was the way moon appeared to be hanging from the tree like an ornament or a Chinese lantern. This was the end result of that concept.
I was just thinking about the Winter. The very first thought came to my mind this december is Snow. So i painted the moon drenching in snow sticked tree branches.

This week I was inspired by 2 things - the beautiful photograph and Dana Marie's small pendant paintings. My pendant is an original, acrylic painting on wood and measures 1 inch in diameter (about the size of a Quarter). I actually bought the little wood discs months ago and never got around to painting on them till now. I've attached a silver plated bail and the pendant comes with a black cord.
