"Galaxy", medium matted watercolor by Lisa, 8" x 8"
This small beautiful watercolor was painted lovingly by Lisa, with great attention to brushwork and color using Winsor Newton paints on thick cotton paper. The painting is 5" x 5", and 8" x 8" matted. Lisa is a moon child born under the sign of Cancer, and remembers watching the first moon walk on her 10th birthday, July 20, 1969. Her library is full of books on both astronomy and astrology, and she finds inspiration in the stars.
"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence." Ralph Waldo Emerson (Nature, 1836), who believed that spending time in nature helps people resist conformity and become their truest selves.
