Phases of the Moon

I thought of all the different sayings that we have to describe the moon: some quite descriptive, others turned into common expressions and a few quite fanciful.  So much folklore and romance has evolved from our common experience of viewing this orb in the night sky. 
I chose just 3 such expressions to paint a little mixed media piece called Phases of the Moon.
The Phases are:  Blue Moon, Green Cheese Moon and Harvest Moon

At a future time I plan to do a textile piece based on a similar theme:

and the Haiku

chameleon moon
many faces to delight
changing yet constant
