There are several images where the moon in the sky or depicted with a river is used as a subject . The mural size, mixed media drawing shown below left is an earlier example depicting the moon with a river and embankment. This drawing shows a prominent linear element using calligraphic mark making to create movement and direction. This gestural aspect of the drawing is a kind of planned spontaneity structured around a asymmetrical composition reminiscent of Japanese screen painting.

The drawing of the moon seen through a window is an example of contrasting a linear element, the window frame, with the trees and moon. The symmetrical composition and use of colour creates a spiritual symbolism.
