Bad Moon
water color pencil and water color
8 x 10 in.

Bad Moon’ was inspired by the art of young children, which reflects their sense of being the centers of their worlds, but is unhindered by the self-consciousness and self-editing that people are conditioned to adopt as they get older. In both pieces I sought to capture a child’s sense of immediate inspiration and desire to tell a story. I used watercolor pencils and watercolors to create the free, fluid movement and emotional color with which children render their images.
