Rising Moon Setting Sun
12x30
oil on canvas
$850

It was one of those days were I was directionless and could not find a place to paint with time running out. Driving down Cabrillo I found a lifeguard tower that was lit up beautifully as the sun sunk towards the horizon. Realizing that I only had about an hour of light I put a halt to my car and my contemplation. As I painted the somewhat mundane scene a full moon rose over the distant mountains. It was actually much further to the left way out of my composition but I scooted it over with a subtle ocean reflection. The end result ended up being one of my current favorites.
