Framing the Moon

Breaking Moon 16”x12” paint on wood panel

Christmas is rapidly closing in. I have all of my presents wrapped so I snuck over to the studio to do some framing. I have a lot of this sort of work to do at the beginning of 2019… I will split my time with painting. I get fidgety knowing I will be out of the studio a lot in the coming week!

Summer Moon

Summer Moon 16”x12”

I know summer is long gone but this title was stuck in my brain. Probably because I have listened to Cashmere by Led Zeppelin so many times in my life.

The magical quality of moonlight is undeniable. It has been a popular subject for centuries but I can not resist the gravitational pull.

I am doing a series of moonlight inspired works so more to come.

Fleeting

The moon and night sky are always so captivating and hypnotic to me. I noticed the moon waxing yesterday evening. I am hoping this weekend, when it is full, more of the smoke in the air will have cleared. I’m already feeling low with summer rapidly winding down, more to look forward to I know.

In the meantime I am painting a series of nocturnal images. This one is 10″x8″… more to come!
