DARK MOON by artist Ulla Anobile
Paper mache, acrylics, 7 1/2” x 10”
The time of the new (dark) moon is that of passivity and brooding. This can be difficult to accept in our world of to-do lists, production quotas and general hyperactivity. But no creativity happens without fallow periods, which can feel oppressive, as one's energy goes underground and a feeling of stagnation can overwhelm. But in fact a great deal is happening in the darkness of the unconscious psyche, where seeds of new life form and germinate.
