Le Petite Lune

When I started working on this last night, I stayed up
late, because I just felt compelled to finish.  I had all my pretty ribbons, and
pieces of fabric, ready.  He was going to be very very different 
than what he ended up being.
I had found an antique religious medallion, and 
Le Petite Lune, started speaking to me. I felt 
very peaceful and quiet as I started pulling the bits and pieces from
my throw-away pile...so crumpled wax paper, and the strings from frayed 
fabric became the grandest garb The Little Moon could want!

He's dress and painted in sepia tones.
Amazing how inspiration started flowing after I picked 
up that Medallion...I had to use my magnifying glass
to see what kind of medal I had...it reads,
O 'Mary conceived without sin, pray for us,
who have recourse to Thee.
1830.
Yes, that is on this tiny little medallion, with an image of Mary.
This morning when I looked at my calendar...today is the Assumption of Mary, 
So when we listen, the spirit moves us.

Be Well!

It's amazing if you keep your eyes and ears open how you can hear God talking to you....this coming from not a big religious person...but like I tell my son all the time...God works in mysterious ways or...KARMA
