Winter Blue, Moonlight

Winter Blue, Moonlight, 2/10/2013, acrylic wash and rice paper on canvas, 24 x 24 inches


Another fantastical night sky...the bigger one that was inspired by the earlier small sketch...

The deep shadows on the snow inspired much of this...there's a purple wash underneath all that ultramarine blue...it's nearly impossible to get a photo of the true color, this is as close as I can get without the pale marks looking pink. It absolutely glows on a white wall - and changes with the light of the day and the room - at night it is near black - quite an elemental beauty. I've dropped it off with Caroline at the Szozda Gallery, it's going to look so dang pretty in her gallery.

It's a blustery and bitter cold winter day on the hilltop - snow devils and sunshine at the same time a true lake effect storm up here. I hear the East Coast (especially Maine) is getting another Nor'Easter. I'm looking forward to spring...
