This work, though called BLUE MOON, might more correctly be titled Cosmic Karma .
It started out as a landscape and morphed into a study in color and space.
Originally it was to be an examination of mosaic pieces flying together to create a river of change running under a rather prosaic house on the hill. However, as it evolved it became more about a starry sky and a new world of many different blue moons enveloping a seemingly normal world.
It harks back to a series of pieces that I did several years ago with planets and starry worlds coexisting to stretch our perception of reality. Ironically the tesserae pieces that I used for the river of red land are from some of those original planetary works. It was as if they required that vast sky to balance their intensity of color. Cosmic Karma, indeed.
