March Moon

Everything has a yellow cast to it here in the lowcountry. The clear glass top tables on our porch now look like they're opaque light yellow.
Some are saying it's the worst they've seen the tree pollen.

I do like to use the Northeast Native American names for the full moons I sketch and have been wondering, of late, what the local Native American's named the full moons.  I've not been able to research that yet but I'm sure they would agree that March's moon should be named after the time when tree pollen covers the land :)
I love full moon eves.  The moon looks big and it rises when there is still plenty of light. I will try again next month to capture the the beauty.  This poor page became very overworked.....

  4. All cars are yellow with pollen... washing it off lasts only a few hours... what we need is rain.

  5. Ah, springtime and sneezing! ha ha I love this painting and was waiting for this one since they made such a big deal of it being the closest to the Earth in 18 years, etc. - for us, once again, clouds completely covered the show so I always look forward to your renderings of what I missed.

    Rhonda, I had no idea the March full moon was extra special! Thank you! Now I have to figure out how to add this info to an already full page :)
