Winter Moon Rise, Butterfly Beach. Feb 25, 2010

Basically, I kept the same composition as the painting from yesterday's Blog entry. However, the season's had changed, and the light too had cooled. The tide was high and the sun had set, and the color periwinkle had permeated the sky.

This was a cool moon, and I was excited about the colors reflecting in the surf. I wonder what happened to the light beacon at the coral casino...oops!
(I guess that is part of what my artistic license is for). Besides, I wanted it to be all about the Moon, and little else.
