Moon Rise with Barn, 2009-2010

oil on canvas 18 x 24 inches

 

At the time I painted this picture I was in the habit of staying up late and going on long moonlit walks.  After a while I felt like I was more familiar with the moon and clouds at night than I was in the daytime.  In the original version of this painting I left the field empty because I enjoyed the way the moonlight looked on the snow.  With the second version however, I wanted to fill that empty space so I added the barn.
