Under the Cloak of the Moon

my blog friend Maureen wondered if the gnome from the last post/painting lowered the mushroom 
cap over himself at night
making him truly invisible

which inspired the above painting

he does! 
look at that, the cap has cloaked all but his boots
under the light of the moon, stars
and gown of the universe of deep blues
this was the first painting: 

with all his heart
he believed:

I am 

he took delight 
in being
 part of the hidden realm

thank you for the inspiration Evergreen Mo
it was fun letting your message inspire the next piece
inspiring me to play with story through images
sweet dreams to you all
