8x10 Day Moon Art Print by Noelle Phares
Noelle Phares: "Day Moon" provides an all-too-familiar view as fire season continues to rage in the western US. Although wildfire is terrifying and destructive, I am always intrigued by the hauntingly pink skies and red suns produced by smoke in the air. Many a sunset in Colorado over the last month boasted a hot pink sun that you couldn’t help but marvel at, finally able to look directly at it as you could a moon, given how much of its otherwise impossible-to-look-at glare was shaded by particulate matter. Day Moon is simply a meditation on the bizarre beauty of these conditions, an homage to the strange times we live in. The original was painted with acrylic and gouache on birch panel.
