Moonrise

Again, this painting rests on top of 3 other failed ones, but I’m only trying to complete one per week so this works. I did this one over the last 2-3 days and decided it’s good enough. I didn’t use palette knives this time, just brushes, on a 9”x12” canvas board. I needed a success, so I painted my favorite subjects of sky and water. Also, it’s just in time for the Paint Party Friday challenge. Painting is great Art Therapy!

  10. A very atmospheric painting. I often repaint and re-purpose, it's fun to change things, and think about all the things hidden under the layers. Happy PPF, stay safe, Valerie

  12. I read somewhere that if you paint over the original, there are often subtle textures and colors that seep through to give the painting an even more lovely appearance. I don't know about that, but I know I really LOVE this one. I think it's very atmospheric and an incredible beauty. As much as I like your palette art, this is simply my favorite so far. I'm enamored with it. I love the subtle changes and the hidden moon behind the clouds. It's gorgeous. Can you tell how much I LOVE it?

    I read your comment on my Friday Smiles blog post. The "mole hills" is an inside joke. My neighbor was building a new driveway, but the rains last year came and stalled pouring the foundations, the cement, everything. In the meantime, the soil that was dug up from where the driveway had been, was piled high in several places. Someone said it looked like huge mole hills and after that, everyone who visited Friday Smiles started calling those huge piles of dirt that eventually ran into the street, mole hills. I updated the neighbor's progress on his driveway often, so many started calling them mole hills in their comments. I have NO moles and neither do any of my neighbors, at least none we've ever noticed. Sorry if the inside joke was lost on you, dear Barbara.
