Girls Looking at Moon - Encouragement Greeting Card
INSIDE GREETING: The world is full of wonderful things.
Bathed in the soft glow of moonlight, these enchanted girls are captured in a moment of wonder as they gaze up from their windowsill. This heartfelt scene is drawn from the painting God's Gift of Night, crafted by the talented Katherine R. Wireman in 1935. Through her artistry, Wireman breathes life into a moment that transcends time, inviting us to share in the quiet magic of contemplating the night sky from the warmth of home.

Katherine Richardson Wireman (1878-1966) was a prolific American artist. Orphaned at a young age, her aunt and guardian, Sallie, also an artist, arranged for her to attend Howard Pyle’s illustration classes at the Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry. There, she formed lifelong friendships, including one with Eugenie M. Wireman, who introduced her to her future husband, Henry F. Wireman. Initially working as a fashion illustrator, Katherine later freelanced for books, ads, and magazines. An unverified but intriguing fun fact: her illustration for the January 1905 issue of The Ladies’ Home Journal might feature the first baby on a magazine cover. Skilled in depicting women, children, and families, Katherine often used her own three children with Henry as models.
