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 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.

Iris, pansy, and rose floral art prints by Elizabeth Ruffing

Pansies floral watercolor art paintng by artist Elizabeth Ruffing

I made up four floral giclée art prints from my watercolor paintings of pansies and iris flowers.

Each one is 3.5 by 5 inches image size on 6 x 8 inch fine art paper. I chose a standard size 6 by 8 inch paper size to expand framing options, as these will fit in either a standard 5 x 7 inch or a standard 6 x 8 inch size mat and frame set, with a white border showing.

Each giclée art print has a decorative floral border surrounding the central image. Above is “Pansies”.

“Purple and White Iris”

“Peach Iris”

“Pink Roses with Gold Border”
