A commissioned birthday painting for a dear dear man, this – a capture of his trip to Antarctica during his years working as a surveyor.⁠
.⁠
I’m not sure about many things in this wild short life we get, but I do believe that no night, no adventure in the genuine company of stars will ever leave you feeling regretful. ⁠
.⁠
And while we truly celebrate our time on this planet only once a year I wish for this special human and for all of you a lifetime of starry nights and many happy earthdays.⁠

When I started this concept of tiny paintings, my wish was to give people a way of remembering their cherished memories in a tangible way – without the need for social media feeds. This little guy is just such a painting. Created as a commission for a special 4-year anniversary gift from a photo taken spontaneously on a special beach. It’s also my first international commission (eep🙌🏼) and travelled across the pond with my buddy from @riotbeer so as not to incur an additional sole purpose carbon footprint.
.
Thank you @damdickey for your support and belief in me. May this moment in time bring you both much happiness and joy for many years to come. Happy Anniversary to you both.

Here’s Dawn’s little painting on her mantlepiece 😁.

So here’s the other half of the concept I shared a part of two days ago under ‘My Honey’s Moon’.
.
This here is my moon – the moon as it was when I was born – a new moon.
.
Folks born under this moon are said to:
“want to leave an impression on people and make your mark on the world. When you love an idea, you’ll work hard for it, sometimes even dropping whatever it is you’re doing to go on to the next new great thing that’s captured your imagination. The more freedom you have to choose what you’re doing, the busier you’ll be.”
.
This is very true for my approach to life and that last line in particular too. I always thought I was the kind of person who didn’t really have agency to drive my own thing, but I was hella good at getting behind someone else’s initiative. It turns out, for me anyway, the missing part was discovering what it was that I truly wanted to be doing with my time here. And this tiny painting challenge is definitely not the whole picture but what it’s giving me day by day is the intentioned space to go deeper and deeper into polishing and refining that vision without necessarily rushing ahead from one idea to the next (as mentioned in the above moon narrative of ‘dropping what you’re doing”).
.
I encourage you to check out your moon sign and see what you can learn about the way you navigate life.
.
Here’s where the moons come together:
I’ve found that the elements of my moon and my partner’s moon have shown us how we can put our natural orientations together to be even more balanced in our approach to achieving our goals and visions. The trees I painted on each of our moons are trees that we feel represent how we like to grow 🙂
.
Get in touch to place a custom order of you and your partner’s moon signs painted to reflect the growth and light of your unique duo. (Maybe I’ll call this offering HoneyMoons😋)
.
Colouring, tree and framing can all be customised to reflect your one-of-a-kindness 🤗
.
I’m seeing ours side by side in a frame above our meditation space. (Swipe to see a concept pic, but I reckon we’ll def make the frame from different wood 😉).

I’ve been painting by a window the last two nights that affords me the beautiful gift of watching the moon rise every night, from behind the mountains.⁠
.⁠
Her visits have brought me a nifty idea. And as bizarre and wonderful as her cycle’s timing is, the first part of my idea actually falls on this night. ⁠
.⁠
We’re currently in the phase of the waxing gibbous moon 🌔(so what she looks like just before she’s full) and it just so happen’s to be the moon under which my guy was born.⁠
.⁠
Folks born under this moon are said to:⁠

“like questioning things and have issues settled before going to work on a problem. You appreciate art, elegant forms, and efficient designs. You seek deeper meanings in things that you see and want your actions to make the world a better place.”⁠
.⁠
Definitely his M.O.⁠
.⁠
For tonight this is the only piece of the idea puzzle I’m sharing. :D⁠

I hope this will help you keep all the lush greenery and abundance of a place you love near, always.⠀
