March is Art Awareness Month
Jean Hart Artwork
March is Art Awareness month,
which means art lovers everywhere need to share their love for art, or their favorite artist.

This month was named after Mars, the god of war. In the Julian calendar, this month included New Year's Day, March 25th, when annual leases for homes and farms were signed. The beginning of the new year was moved to January later on, when the Gregorian calendar was instituted.
Full moon aspect: Storm moon
Universal event: Spring fires drying up the floods, materialization of the new year.
Message: To grow, to prosper, to explore
Color: Red, green
Tree: Alder tree or dogwood
Flower: Daffodil, jonquil
Creature: Sea crow, cougar
Gem: Bloodstone, aquamarine
Because March is Art Awareness month,
I think I will challenge myself to paint something about March.
Whether it be a creature, a flower and a message in Red.
If you want to join in I would love to see what you create.
