“March Moon”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.
Today (actually 2 days ago) I knew the moon would be coming up a 1/2 hour before sunset. I just wasn’t exactly sure where. I wanted to set up so that it would be very near the light, but I hadn’t done my calculations. It also got lost rising behind the low cloud bank and was 10 minutes late. So I painted and just forgot about it as I got into a rhythm. It was suddenly there, pink at first blush from going through the purple clouds. Then it yellowed-oranged out into its full splendor…
