    Artist Statement

    This work is called “Full Moon with a Breeze” in oil pastel. I was inspired by the night sky when my family and I drove out to the country to visit some friends. There was a soft breeze and so many stars could be seen.  I tried to include these elements my dotting the dark area of my drawing with white oil pastel. I added a giant, off-centered full moon and some dark, mysterious clouds. In my moon, I used colors that normally wouldn’t be seen in the moon. I made this for my Mom, who taught me how to use oil pastels.
