Menstrual Moon - 2000

Whilst the previous painting was about the absence of sunlight, this one is about presence, the moon's continuing ability to have and hold a magnetic sway over the whole earth.

This tour the force contains metaphysical dimension alongside its physical attributes; the moon has always influenced affairs of the heart, as well as affecting the psyche of the planet.

Twice each day from my studio I witness millions of tons of water being hauled clean in to the air en masse as if by magic, each time in tune with the moon's power at that moment.

I often paint the moon in the many varieties of her guise whether girt in swathes of fast-moving densities of cloud or standing clear, proud as crystal, surrounded by a sea of stars.
