Singleton Moon Set

Has anyone been awake to watch the setting moon? It is not nearly as popular a pastime as watching the sun set - but the setting of the full moon can be spectacular. The sun was soon to rise from the opposite direction. The full moon on March 16th was quite remarkable. This is the view westward across Singleton Lake.
The hand stretched canvas on a stretcher frame built by my Dad had a lot of tooth. The canvas really grabbed the paint so I used a lot of it. As always, it was fun.

This is a wonderful little painting, Phil! Isn't it exciting how as our eyes get used to darkness, more and more colours come out, some of them playing tricks on our retinas - I love the red you saw there at the lake edge!
