Full Moon Tonight—Journaling and ART

Artist Trading Card, Oil Pastel and Coloured Pencil Painting, available at Etsy
My miniature works of art are often moments in time, captured on a micro scale. I was trapped in traffic on my way home. It was a glorious evening, and I knew there were thick layers of fresh snow waiting in the woods for me and my cross-country skiis. I was somewhat frustrated, to put things mildly; time was ticking by.  The consolation prize was being witness to a cherry red sunset at my back and a glowing golden moonrise before me. These things, in a flash of a moment, must be memorized for later retrieval.
