As The Night Comes (revised)

As The Night Comes- Moonlight Reveal

oil on board

This is the painting that went under a major re-vamp at the studio this past week. And of course a day later I got an email from a friend saying she saw the the original on my blog and wanted it! Ha! Oh well, I like this one more and as I was making changes I had visions of Gregory Hardy's skies in my mind, so this revised version is an ode to him. Here is what the original looked like:

Basically I kept the dark sky at the top, the very bottom horizon line and the puffs at the tops of the clouds- these are (in my mind) what the moon is revealing under it's glowing light. There is actually purple in the darkest colour at the top, but I just can't get a good photo.

So I am off on a solo painting retreat! I am driving to Waskesiu right away partly to clean and close my parent's cabin down for the season and partly to paint, paint, paint! I am also going to read and watch movies. I zipped into the Blockbuster end-of-business blow-out sale and grabbed an eclectic mix of movies to watch for the next two nights: Eclipse, The Polar Express, and Georgia O'Keefe. That assortment cracks me up!

Anyway, I hope to have some good things to show when I return.
