I gained creative inspiration from the full moon.
April 4, 2015 was a ” Blood Moon” , “Rose Moon” full moon in Hawaii. I was able to experience my first night hike to an area lighthouse to watch the moon rise.
I took photos at the Makapuu’u Lighthouse at different times of the day. I had late afternoon, and early evening photos from the vantage point of the hiked trail.
To prepare with a theme and draw upon inspiration of the full moon phase process, I created a pair of bead embroidery earrings in advance of this hike. The earrings I created featured rose-colored round pearls as an resemblance and reference of the “Rose Moon”. The “Blood Moon” is also referred to as a “Rose Moon”. And, to me any type of full moon is special.
This was my first moon-lit hike, it was also a great time to share the Club Creative Studio “Trail Treasure” art as well. This is the series of art items that I refer to as “Trail Treasures” that are given freely. It is a gift to the universe. Finders of my abandoned art are keepers of it.
Sometimes, I do hear back from those who have found Club Creative Studio art and they express their appreciation. Below, I share with you a photo that the “finders” took and their words of gratitude sent to me in an e-mail. I am grateful for their enthusiasm.
“I just wanted to tell you thank you for the earrings that we found at Makapuu ‘u hike. My girlfriend and I found it on Easter morning on our sunrise hike. She loves them and wore them to church that morning. I just wanted to say thank you so much that was so thoughtful and kind! God Bless!”
