Holding the Moon
It's all in the hands of the 9th Annual Abstract Sanctuary Artists

Tonight when the stars come out and the moon rises in the velvet sky, look outside your window, then raise your hand and position your fingers around the disk of light.
There you go . . . That was easy!”
“We wish with our hands, that's what we do as artists.” Jandy Nelson
