Full Moon Night - Lin Frye

Full Moon Night

I just couldn't get that full moon out of my mind yesterday and just HAD to try to paint it. It took several attempts to come close to what I 'think' I saw ...and I'd like to try several more 'night' scenes. I love sunrises and sunsets, and there's a certain wonder I feel when I watch a moon rise up from the earth's rim, through the wispy bare branches of my trees, and take it's place among the stars. Capturing that 'magic' is going to be interesting! LOL

It's raining already, and the cats have been nestled in their bed on the porch. Pre-op chores are done and today it's working on holiday decorations and preparations. I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around Christmas being mere weeks away!

Stay dry today -- and warm! If it's going to be another grey, cold day, I'm wishing for SNOW!

  1. I just LOVE these full moon sketches! Beautifully done, Lin!

  2. Woo Hoo, Lin. Lovely capture! I've asked Santa for a head lamp so I can better see what I'm up to when painting plein air at night :)

  3. I agree, Lin. I too love these moon sketches. This one is just stunning.

  4. Lovely, Lin. Full of the magic of shadows and movement.
