Artist Statement : "'Blue Moon' was inspired by the famous quote 'Once in a Blue Moon.' There is a full moon every 29.5 days. Every 2.7 years there are two full moons in one calendar month, and the second one is called a Blue Moon. July 2004 will have two full moons: the first on July 2, and the second on July 31 which will be the Blue Moon." - Calvin Hunt
