GARDEN OF A MOON GAZER


It makes to feel so small sometimes when thinking as big thoughts as the distances between the Sun and our beautiful planet Earth. And that, here very early tomorrow morning, we see Venus passing in between these two. 


How things could happen as they are now, that we have here a summer, in Sydney it is autumn. That we all can jump and we all drop down to the ground, no one getting lost in to the space. That there are such things as dark winter nights and nightless Northern summer nights. And how the Moon is such a good companion, always following us, showing his face to us so secretly. Full or half, a crescent. Sometimes hiding. That we see the Venus as a small black dot in front of the sun. Distances that are too long to think.


A garden for a night sky watcher, and shooting star finder. Garden for night time scents and blue flowers. A small tent hut also for a gazer of the transit of Venus. Garden of A Moon Gazer available as an original painting from me and as different sized prints from L’Affiche Moderne. Thank you so much Mélanie for this opportunity! 


Is it possible to see the journey of Venus from your place? Will you see it? (Please, remember to protect your eyes!) Let´s see if the weather is fine here tomorrow morning. Today it shines through puffy sheep-formed clouds.


Greetings to Venus, to Moon and to you.

  1. Lovely.

    I've always thought many of our problems could be solved if we all could see the stars every night, to remind us that we're small.

    1. Such a nice idea, then we could wave to each others when passing in the huge space!

  9. You have a lovely way of looking at things. Here the clouds rolled in just before we would have seen Venus, perhaps nature's way of protecting our eyes. :)

    1. Also I only saw photos of it as I did not find anyone with protective spectacles. The morning was still magical, everything was covered with thin frost and the sun started to melt it.

    that you are there and we are all dotted in our ethereal connection around the world able to savour and share our worlds through individual eyes and hearts.
