Watercolor and Gouache, 2023
In its final beautiful transformation, the Luna moth has no mouth and lives for approximately one week. They are often used as symbols of transformation, death, and rebirth.
The waning moon phase occurs after the full moon and prior to the new.
“Endings” combines the symbolism of the Luna moth, a human skull, and a waning moon. All of which represent the end of their own phases. Many fear when the end draws near. As a firm believer in rebirth after endings, whether the ending be of a singular relationship within our lives or our lives in a whole, the imagery presented is whimsical, vibrant, and welcoming as endings are meant to be.
