On a beautiful early, early morning in January, I was watching looking out my back window and saw the moon setting between the the trees. It just happened to be between a couple of branches and the sight inspired me. I went to my studio and painted this before I could loose the memory, or the feeling.
If you can imagine looking at the setting moon on a cold winter morning and seeing the moonlight reflecting off the bare branches. The sun hasn't fully risen and you're warm with a fresh cup of coffee viewing the endlessly wandering moon suddenly caught by a birch tree.
This is a 16 x 20 inch original palette knife oil painting.
