Moonrise

In this painting I tried to capture the feelings of tranquility and peacefulness that moonlight can create.

The moon is always a welcome sight in the night sky, especially at this time of the year, when the days are at their shortest and the nights are long and dark. There is something about the moon that has always seemed comforting to me. Throughout all of the ages of human life many among us have gazed up at it and contemplated our place in the universe.

“The moving Moon went up the sky.
And nowhere did abide;
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside.”
~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge
