It's been at least 6 years since I had the idea to start painting this moon. The concept was quite clear from the start. However, I'm not much of a painter. I had painted 3 out of 4 quadrants (the lighter parts) when it all stranded. I was stuck. I ignored it for a couple of years. I think I moved this half baked painting 4 times. Going from one studio to the next one. The longer I waited the harder it was to finish it up.

When Gust from De Makers asked me to collaborate on their "Makers of the month", I had a couple of ideas. Finishing up this piece was the most scary thing on the list. You can guess which one he preferred right? Yep, he loved it. All of a sudden, I had only a couple of weeks to finish what I had been putting off for years. With fresh courage and a clear deadline, I started on the remaining 25% of the painting.
