Fireflies and a Full Moon

I just listed a new print. It was an evolution of sorts. Since my "Constellations" print is the most popular (or at least the most favorited on Etsy) I decided that perhaps I needed to do more moon/sky type paintings. They are fun for me though a challenge to get the moon to look just the way I want (aka reasonably realistic). 

Firefly Moon became what it is when I decided to add the magical little critters. I was reminded of vacations when we would visit friends in Georgia on our way to see my grandfather in Florida. We would run through the woods at dusk and catch fireflies in jars.  We don't have fireflies here in San Diego so this was something special to remember.
