Full Moon


Full Moon
Watercolour
Sketchbook

I love trying to paint at night.  I like the way your eyes adjust to the light and different places show their colours as you look at them.  I also love the quietness, how the sounds of the night become so sharp.  This is in my tiny garden behind my house, it is just about 4am. a toad hops slowly across the gravel, owls hoot and far away a dog barks.  Ha...I can hear someone snoring!

Wow, love this painting. It has a wondrous atmosphere to it, but then again, I'm always a sucker for the moon.

Hi Sarah, Is there a problem with your regular blog - the non-painting one? Want to put a link to it on my new layout and it just seems to have disappeared (or is it me?)

Glad things are going well for you

This is a beautiful piece of work. What a nice job of giving realness to a night scene.

I have not been here or a while and the paintings have taken on a different "feel"

I think I am going to buy another one!!

I would like to use "Muddy Cup" in an email with a link back to your web site. I don't know how to email you directly (can't find a way to email or call you from your web site - I wonder how to even order if I were interested).

I started an organic food company in Poland called Symbio (www.symbio-organic.com), and purchased these cups in Krakow back in 1994. I would love to use the image for my customers, farmers, suppliers for a Holiday Card (email version). Will this be OK?
