The New Moon

Tonight is the start of the new moon.
A new moon is a time of inception, a time of new beginnings.
Tonight a grand trine will form in Aquarius of the sun, the moon and mars. This will inspire opportunities and forward movement in our lives. It denotes a time of cutting through to the chase and releasing extraneous hazards that allow shortcuts to the desired outcome of reaching the light at the end of the tunnel.

The top image is from my sketchbook and I like it so much I've decided to paint a new one and I'm now offering it for sale. :)
The price will be £25 ($40). It measures approx. 9" x 12"

and here is the finished painting...
