Add some spice to your walls with this Watercolor Print of The Moon, The Lunatic, and the Divine

A watercolor painting in the art nouveau style with three bobcat skulls, poppies, and a lotus flower.

THE ART

The moon, the lunatic, and the divine - I used poppies and a lotus flower because I wanted to talk about the relationship between madness or addiction and transcendence, and how I feel like the two are often connected in ways that we may not fully understand.

They are both growing from the same bobcat skull, as cats have long been guardians to other realms, and I like to think of them as metaphorical gatekeepers to some of the worlds inside of us as well. The moon and her phases have been associated with many rituals of self-exploration worldwide, as well as odd and unusual behavior as the moon gets full.

For me, this piece is about mental health as a hero's journey, in a sense, where the hero must journey into the other world/nether world to learn something profound about themselves, the world, and life and then return.

You may have noticed that skulls are featured prominently in my work. I love to use them as a device to talk about the self laid bare, without any of the social constructs or ego traps that we often bring to our identity.
