Sunday Postcard Art: Full Moon


While looking for full moon images on wikimedia commons, I found an image of a map of the moon made by Thomas Harriot in the early 1600's. It surprised me that someone was able to do this so long ago. I've incorporated it into my "Moon" digital collage, below.  The early world map shown in the collage is from Pepin Press.

Sunday Postcard Art: Weather


The weather has been somewhat confused around here lately. Last week, as spring technically began, snow and sleet were falling all around us.

For this challenge, I layered a photo I took of the Grand Teton Mountains several years ago, with a NASA photo of the planets and a celestial map from Google Images.
