Over the last couple of month I have been inspired by the moon. The paintings I have created so far have sometimes a dreamlike feel to it but also depict what I experienced last March at a clear night at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts in Canning. The cold air and the distance to the city lights, makes for wonderful star gazing.

It was a night of a very young waxing moon when I saw this slice of light coming up over the horizon. A small piece of the moon reflecting the light of the sun. The strength of the light was amazing. I started to pay even more attention to the moon in the last couple of months. I will continue to explore the shades, the light, the lines and the night colours.

One of the moon paintings 'Atlantic Moon' will be shown at the SCA Elected Member Exhibition at the Halifax Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Opening Reception: Sunday, September 30 from 2-6 p.m.
