9th Moon - The Moons of 2021

A painting with the Moon each month as medicine to heal from the year that shall not be named.


This month I chose to trust the names. Two were so visual for me that they literally informed and inspired the second layer (and most definitely not the last) of this month's Moon painting:


Yellow Leaf Moon

Black Butterfly Moon


Below are all the names of the 9th Moon that I could find. The Moon unites us.

We all call the Moon by her name.
