'Morning Stars'; acrylic and prismacolor on muslin; 5"x8"
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
Happily, we have had more than the usual number of clear skies this winter, and as a result, Venus has been my companion on many morning walks. The past several days she has been noticeably lower on the horizon. This morning, she was gone altogether, sunk below the trees. I miss her. This little painting is an ode to her light and a celebration of the many shooting stars which entertain me as Flossy and I brave the cold and dark.
