12 x 9 Oil on Panel
Now that our house projects are mostly over, I am looking forward to painting this summer. I have been gesso-ing surfaces in anticipation of a prolific period. We'll see if my optimism pans out! In total, I have 26 Masonite panels and 6 stretched canvases ready for painting, in a variety of sizes from small (6x6) to quite large (30x40).
The "Moon" painting is one of the "winter" paintings I finished up last week. Like the "Apple on the Windowsill," I painted it from a black and white film photograph taken years ago. It's a view from our front porch through the trees. The moon was irresistible that night.
I enjoyed making up the colors and figuring out how to use "dashes" as paint strokes to create a sense of broken moonlight.
