Moonlight Feels Right

Moonlight Feels Right
16x20, acrylic on gallery wrap canvas.

Here's my latest. The house is one I photographed on a recent road trip somewhere in the Bowdoin/Sabattus area. I wanted to do something different, and I love doing the coral-colored underpainting. It's been a while since I did one, and I decided to turn this one into a night painting, with clouds drifting across the face of the moon while warm light glows from every window of the old farmhouse. It's very different for me, more of an expressionistic style than my usual realism, but I like the result. The color really pops.
