Thank you, Erin! I've only ever included the moon in one painting before, I think--along with the sun, in a big painting called "Travelers" that was a personal homage and response to the opening lines of Matsuo Basho's great "Narrow Journey to the Interior"--one of my most beloved texts. It's scary to me, including such a not only universal, but too-often and too-lightly used image, and so these are the only two times in a half-century of serious painting that I've had a personal enough reason to allow myself to include it.

Oh goodness, both Thin Place and Night Muse are really breathtaking. I don't recall very many moon paintings of yours - someone very lucky will get to contemplate those magical places you've created.
