I made this for the WWP 9 Yule swap. When I asked how my partner (Solitaire) how she envisioned the goddess she said as a moon goddess so I kinda ran with that theme.

The background is old book pages over a box built from thin wood and watercolor paper for the sides (so as not to ripple when many layers of paint were added). I then used acrylic paints to build up the background color. The moon is from a science book from the 1960s and the goddess is a vintage image I found online. I printed her out in black and white and painted her with watered down acrylics and glitter paint. The pressed flowers in the background are from my yard (periwinkle and silver maple). The stars in the background are iridescent sequins with paint in the center.



We all know purple photographs strangely, but this is quite true to color. Thanks for looking!

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.
