"My Very Own Moonrise" by Karla Nolan, gallery wrapped oil painting
Well, it has been quite the summer, most unusual. I'll spare you the details. I have returned to painting finally and am writing my first blog since late May.
A client contacted me a number of months ago to ask if I would paint a three foot by four foot moonrise painting. I was astonished, as I have never painted such a large work, but gathered steam and enthusiasm and completed the chore at hand with great delight. It was a wonderful experience stepping out of my comfort zone, as much of the painting was different hues and toes of grays. I'm the color lady, normally! Suffice it to say, I learned a lot! I'll be posting a jpeg of that painting soon. (This is the first of the "Lunar Series" I'm showing.)
I was so happy with the result that my husband and I decided that we needed a moonrise painting, also. It's been quite a while since I attempted anything for our own house, but here is the result. I'm happy! No, it's not for sale. Sorry!
