Full Moon and Eqiunoxes


There's something special happening next week! According to, an event that takes place every fifteen years or so!  Drum roll.............. A Full Moon on the Equinox

You all know I love watercolor sketching full moons.  What a treat this will be!  Mark your calendars, be there or be square :)  Thursday, September 23rd.  Dance in the moonlight and celebrate the Autumnal Equinox and the Full Harvest Moon!

Yes, that's right.... The Harvest Moon.  The Farmer's Almanac says that the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox is the Harvest Moon.  In fact, two years out of three the Harvest Moon is in September.  Last year it was in October and pictured to the left is a snippet from the sketch I did overlooking the May River.

What location to choose for next week's sketch?  Hmmmmmmm....... Stay tuned!


  1. Love your full moon paintings so I'll definitely be watching to see what this auspicious full moon brings :)

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I'll see if I can't get something down on the page!

  3. I look forward to seeing your moon sketch and will be out looking at the moon on September 23. Thanks for alerting us.

  4. Thanks, Joan! This is fun, as I sketch I can think of all my blogging buddies and know they're looking at the moon too :)

  5. We'll be looking at the moon and thinking of you, Pam!
