Here's a little painting of a waxing crescent moon. This is my favorite phase of the moon because of the reflective light from earth on the dark side of the moon. The faint glow along dark edge gives the moon wonderful dimension.

This is an original miniature painting by me, Sharon B. Mathieu.

This painting is 4 x 6 in., Acrylic on paperboard.

Frame is wood with a antique silver finish.

a print of this painting is available here:

The moon is "waxing" while it appears to grow from new to full. The right side of the moon appears completely round and smooth while the left side starts as a crescent and then looks jagged as it moves out to the gibbous (kind of an oval shape) form. It can be helpful to think of the waxing moon as looking like a D. (Source: How to tell if the moon is waxing or waning |
