Each year I return to San Rafael, CA for their exceptional Italian Street Painting Festival. This year, the theme was 'The Wonders of Space and Time.' I was certain you'd see a lot of astronauts / planets / stars / clocks / clouds / rockets and spacecraft... so I spent a lot of time (ha, pun!) coming up with something unique.
Luna, in Roman Mythology, is the divine embodiment of the Moon and is the female compliment to the Sun.
The Moon, and the Sun, were my first connection to the concept of space and time. The festival theme reminded me of being a child and staring up at the Moon and the stars in the night sky wondering about life and my place within it. I spent MANY nights sleeping under the Moon!
I've always felt a connection to the Moon, have had dreams about it and even named my business Three Moons Studio.
In my imagination Luna is the Goddess who leads the Moon in its orbit around the Earth.
