Once in a blue moon

Silk painting, framed, 9 x 9 inch, or 25cm x 25cm.

I started this piece of work two years ago when I was in California. I drew the outline with gutta serti and painted with colour. For some reason, I couldn't find the feeling so I put it aside.

Living in Sydney with bright Australian sunshine everyday, I came to miss the cool snow in the other continents where I used to live. In a burning hot afternoon, I dipped my brush in the mysterious purple and serene blue. There it came - Once in a blue moon.
