The Moon Sings a Lullaby Full of Poppies and Katydids watercolor fantasy art by Elizabeth Ruffing“The Moon Sings a Lullaby Full of Poppies and Katydids” is an original watercolor painting with pen-and-ink detailing. I am making a limited number of reproductions of this image as a signed giclée print as well, on 8 1/2 by 11 inch art paper.

This is a fantasy piece. I was imagining what kind of lullaby the moon would sing, if the moon could sing, to help people drift off to sleep. I thought of the sounds of katydids, which I’ve always loved to listen to on summer nights. And I thought of the poppy field in The Wizard of Oz, which caused Dorothy and her friends to fall asleep on their way to The Emerald City. This is a picture of the moon singing us all to sleep with a lullaby full of poppies and katydids.

Pink poppies and katydids float all around her, like music coming from her mouth. She wears a crown of paper dolls. Stars glow on her robe.

A decorative floral border encloses the central image.
