Super Moon Arises

Ever since super moon arrived awhile ago, I have been thinking about creating a Super Moon Cloth as part of the SunMoonStars Series.  But super moon has to be really spectacular, doesn’t it?

I found a background cloth of cotton batiste, which I had shibori-dyed with black walnut exhaust.  It’s got those nifty little planets roaming around the universe.

And then I found a scrap of cutch-dyed jersey, which looks like an excellent sun or star.  But wait a minute.  What is the difference between a “star” and a “sun”?  Cornell University states that a star is called a sun “…IF (my caps) it is the center of a planetary system.”  That’s in the beginner series for those who are astro-curious. And, of course, it’s much more complicated than that.  OK… I will need to be careful what I call my scraps of cloth.

  1. I wouldn’t worry about astrological technicalities. Go for it! Isn’t that what artists do make their own interpretations? 🙂
