Soul of the Moon by KimAmI Soul of the Moon by KimAmI
This was done for a local art show my club is putting on. The theme is "We Only Come Out at Night", which we could interpret however we saw fit. The Night Roost was created for this show. The digital version is up here, but I actually made a traditional piece of it. It didn't photograph well. I'll upload it later.

Any ways, this was kind of a play on words. Lunar moths are coming from the moon... almost like they're born from it. I read somewhere that moths and butterflies were thought to be the souls of the dead... That's what I was going for.

7.5 x 20, watercolour and gouache on watercolour board.

I just meant that I liked your comment and I wish there were a button to express that fact... haha.

I do that on here. I search for the 'like' button only to remember that this isn't Facebook.
