North Beach Moon

On our walk this evening, this view of the moon hanging in the subdued gradient of color, framed by the tall palm trees stopped me.  Thankfully I had my faithful reference photographer (and supportive husband) with me.  What a fun composition to paint.

Sunset Waltz II

I actually painted the first Sunset Waltz (9 x 12) a few years back and it has since sold.  I really enjoyed painting the first and thought I’d paint it larger this time.  This one took on a life of it’s own as I used the first painting as a spring board to paint from.  They have their similarities, however the clouds took off and showed me where to go as they lead me in this dance called painting.
