Positive affirmation 'Sun and Moon' artwork with sentiment: 'Live with the passion of the sun and the kindness of the moon'...
I wanted to create a celestial style artwork with sun, moon, and stars, together with a positive affirmation...
The Sun & the Moon in the Celtic World
The sun and moon were vitally important in Celtic culture as essential aspects of the natural world.
The sun was seen as a life-giver, representative of the seasons, the 'wheel' of the year and fertility.
In the early Celtic period, Iron Age to Romano-Celtic, people would leave offerings of solar symbols (the 'solar-wheel') at shrines and in watery places, probably to request healing or fertility from a solar deity. The sky-god Jupiter was often associated with the solar wheel symbol and adopted by the Celtic peoples.
The moon was also important in the Celtic world, and often associated with women and fertility. The Roman goddess Diana was linked with the moon. The Roman writer Pliny wrote that druids believed the moon was healing.
Lunar and solar Celtic pendants and amulets have been discovered and are also seen in the iconography of moon and sun deities.

I create my art from my drawings, which I scan into the computer and then put together digitally with an ink-painted background to create the final artwork - I can arrange the elements and tweak the colours to get the effect I want...
I added a positive affirmation of my own composition, relating to the brilliant energy and passion of the sun and the gentle kindness of the moon, reflected in our own way of living in our modern world - 'Live with the passion of the sun and the kindness of the moon'.
