Painting ‘Moon’ Companion to ‘Sun’ Pt. 1

A while back I finished the painting Sun. An oil on linen stretched canvas painting. When I made the canvas for this painting I made two identical canvases always intending to create a companion painting to Sun. Sometimes things take a little longer then we anticipate. In this case I had to repairs that badly needed doing to the art studio. The repairs are complete the studio is cleaned and reorganized and now FINALLY I am back in there painting away. It feel like a brand new art space!

This is one of two or three blog entries detailing the process of ‘Moon’ Enjoy!
