Birth

I have a bit of an obsession with the moon. It crops up a lot in my work and my thinking, not to mention all the hours I spend gazing at it. It is often associated with the female aspect, contemplation and transition.
So when I pulled this scrap of paper from an old copy of the Book of Fate and saw that it read Signs of Birth it immediately made a connection for me with this vintage image of the moon and I constructed this piece around those two elements.

  5. I am a bit of a lunatic too - it affects my sleep pattern when it is a full moon and my moods.
    I love this piece, the colours and the repetition of the circle shapes on the right. Very imaginative and fun!
