October Moon: Blackberry Moon

  1. Greetings. I really like the painting on your skulls. It’s probably a given but I was wondering what sort of paints you used for the skulls. Blessings.

    1. Sorry it took a minute to get back to you – the paints are a mix of water-based paint and for the black it’s ground ash/charcoal and water-based paint mixed together. It sounds odd but I love the finish. I hope this helps!

  2. I’m curious where you are located- the blackberries (black raspberries technically) that grow in our front yard ripen in July, so I associate that with the beginning of Lughnasadh. Your painted skulls remind me a lot of Dia de los Muertos (Mexican Day of the Dead) Is that an inspiration at all for you?

    1. I’m in NE Colorado – we HAD blackberries by the river until the unbelievably hard freeze – now, we just have a bush.

      I am inspired by many folk traditions, Dia de los Muertos being one of them. And, following the lines in the skulls themselves provide a guide for my painting.

      I hope this helps :).
