Rita Herzfeld – “Lunar Lunacy” acrylic on paper

The power of the Moon and the effect it has on romance is quite amazing.  Lovers looking at each other in the light of the moon all look perfect.  Moonlight can seduce you.  Encounters that in the light of day are just pleasant, become more intense and all of a sudden…you’re in love.  I find that the moonlight, peeking
through the treetops and shimmering on the lake fills me with a sense that all is right in my world.
On the other hand, as a child, I felt that the moon and the darkness were frightening. Leaves were falling around me…some landing on my head…the rustle of leaves on the  ground, the sudden flurry of something passing right overhead…Birds?…Bats? And the moon had a face on it…it was scowling…run, run home to a warm, well lit home.
