Latest work: "Blood Moon"

I got up early this morning to see the 2014 "Blood Moon" lunar eclipse out over the ocean. As usual, overcast skies made moon-gazing out of the question. So I created my own lunar eclipse, using my photographs of paint splotches, hand-painted papers, ink-washed papers, Japanese calligraphy, and more. You can see a shadow cross the moon as well as a very faint reflection in what might be water just below.

You know the phrase, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade?" Well, life gave me a moonless morning, so I made my own. ©Carol Leigh
