12" X 16" Oil on canvas Was wanting to try out a very pale background so I came up with this one. A simple landscape with a moonrise going on. Contrast is a bit off so the moon stands out a bit more on the actual painting. Fun little painting to do.
I paint primarily landscapes in oils. My work is influenced by the early California impressionsist painters and a host of contemporary painters. I seek to capture light and atmosphere in my work and love the challenge.
I work both in the studio as well as en plein air.
