Song To The Moon - A Best Seller - But Why?

I have many a time wondered why this work is a best seller. I know it's a beautiful moon, but there are many beautiful moon photographs, so what is it about this one?

Perhaps it is the image and I am a harsh critique of my own work, on the other hand maybe it's the title and the work.

I called it "song to the moon" after a very famous a beloved operatic aria by the same name. It really makes me wonder about the importance of titles in artworks. I had no intent to make people fall in love with the work and yet they did. In truth I named it after the aria because it is in my own musical repertoire and one I had always loved, so here is the image and the lyrics. Yes, they are in English for my followers :)


Art Prints



Silver moon upon the deep dark sky,

Through the vast night pierce your rays.

This sleeping world you wander by,

Smiling on men's homes and ways.

Oh moon ere past you glide, tell me,

Tell me, oh where does my loved one bide?

Oh moon ere past you glide, tell me

Tell me, oh where does my loved one bide?

Tell him, oh tell him, my silver moon,

Mine are the arms that shall hold him,

That between waking and sleeping he may

Think of the love that enfolds him,

May between waking and sleeping

Think of the love that enfolds him.

Light his path far away, light his path,

Tell him, oh tell him who does for him stay!

Human soul, should it dream of me, Let my memory wakened be.

Moon, moon, oh do not wane, do not wane,

Moon, oh moon, do not wane!

Shattered Lily Abstract Grunge Art Print

Shattered Lily Abstract Grunge
Flowers always fascinate me, but there are so many images of straight flowers looking absolutely beautiful that I love creating different and more emotive images - emotive in a sense that they come from within me and whatever you see as a viewer is the beauty of abstract.

Yellow Red and Green Highly Modern Colors which would brighten and enliven any room. A sense of movement within the artwork gives a tender touch of elegance and the impasto paint a very contemporary appearance. A lily is imaginatively shattered.

Crescendo Of Spring Abstract Art Print

Crescendo Of Spring is an abstract realistic work representational of the heralding of Spring and Summer. I love the changing of seasons and finding new ways to represent each season in an emotive way as to how I feel about the change rather than do a repeat of what has been done before - and I still love doing what has done before, as there is great beauty in what is totally natural and more realistic, but at this time my art is taking me in a more abstract or impressionistic direction which I am really enjoying working from the emotive rather than the visual.
