100 variations? Here's a link. For a real treat check them out now. WOW! Watching her do those inspired me to work on my own version of variations. Here is another form the long verticals/lake needwood. As per her suggestion, I just began with a color and watched where it took me. I did not know I would be doing the blue moon snow version when I began. I just wanted to meld the idea of calm areas and energetic marked areas.
On another note, my best friend Leah loves the moon, especially the blue moon. So this one is for her. The blue moon only happens every once and awhile. The moon has a cycle of 28 days and a blue moon means the ending of 2 moon cycles in one month, otherwise two full moons in a month. This year it happened on new year's eve. All kinds of celebrations happen on the blue moon.
