Moonlight is always a joy to see. One of the beautiful benefits of living in the country.
A little study of a nocturnal sky and rising moon.
This painting is part of my solo show at Abend Gallery in Denver, opening August 12th. Digging deep for this exhibit.
Moonlight as inspiration on this painting.
Studio light alone shines on this moonscape commission. Last look at this one, it was packed up and shipped to its new home.
A small painting I did as a commission. I am going to make some large moon related paintings so this was a nice warmup.
When the moon comes out in the winter it seems especially magic. The light is so limited in January.
It is a stream darkly meandering.
Negativity eroding the shore.
Stay dry, the current is strong.
I often hear about Holiday depression. This year I seem to be feeling it. A terrible dread and sense of hopelessness. Perhaps it is a chemical thing. Maybe something to do with the sun failing to rise above the hill. I posted something regrettable last night on WordPress, I am sorry for that. I hope everyone is doing well this Holiday Season.
When the moon lights up the night it creates a magical otherworldly quality. The forest becomes such a mysterious and intriguing place. For all it’s beauty I can not recommend night hiking.
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!
I just completed this nocturnal painting. I have a growing collection of moon related art, most will be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento in January!
