Moonset 214

Moonset 214

Piece description from the artist

I awoke early one crisp cold February morning to this full moon set through the trees.
In this painting I am experimenting with low light levels at dawn. The faded color at dawn is a function of our eyes not seeing the light rays reflecting off of the objects. The color is there, we just can't see it. I am exaggerating the hue saturation to create a dream-like quality. The moon provides a cool light, hence the slightly cooler palette than I normally use. This series of works are heavily textured with layers of paint and tool marks evident on the surface. This work glows in low light conditions.
