Acrylic and copper with matt gel medium on canvas.
I wanted to paint the beauty of an eclipse. I am inspired by the relationship that native Americans had with the sun.
The sun symbol represents life- giving abundance with its warmth radiating healing and peace. There is always light surrounding the darkness.

This piece was inspired by the last lunar eclipse in May 21. The moon turned a beautiful copper and I wanted to capture this stunning moon. Lunar eclipse is a mix of copper, silver and oxidised silver round the edge to keep the warmth. The base is a powder blue to keep the piece bright and uplifting.
