Moonlight Series #4


on Arches 140# quarter sheet

I have been working on this one for several weeks. Yesterday I wasn’t satisfied with the other half of the painting and split it in half and switched the orientation and found out that I like it better this way! I added a bit of yellow acrylic and now I feel satisfied that it is finished.

I follow my inner creative in my decision making in what to paint or how. I had no preconceived idea on how to start this painting or finish. I wait until I get an idea of a shape or color and then follow along.

Setting aside a painting, especially an abstract is important, sometimes it takes a while for creativity. It is very odd that I’ll work on a painting and then discover that the orientation is different from my original plan.  Here are the other posts about this series: Moonlight Abstract #1  Moonlight Abstract #2 and Falls  Moonlight #3 & Co.


*A word about photos. The photos on my blog are mine, taken by me and copying them would be stealing from me. If you find a photo that you would like to copy or use, I request that you ask me for permission and I expect you to give me full credit for my own photo. Thank you so very much.

  1. Very interesting. With the title Moonlight Series, I expected something representational. It looks like it started out that way then wandered off. Very interesting. I have a painting that 90% of viewers think should hang the other way up – looks like you have one that you felt the same about.

    1. hehe….I keep looking at it trying to figure out what the heck did I paint!!?? all from the subconscious, so what does that mean? I think that it looks a bit space ship from another galaxy. I love hearing what people see or don’t see. 😉


  2. A stunning series, Margaret. I checked out all 4, and they show a wonderful transition as you worked with the subject and your own emotional approach to the canvas. I like them all, but #1 seems to draw me in. I want to stand and look and look.

    that. is what I love to see in art!! your personal interpretation, expression. the Willingness to risk it all – this is something, FEW painters are willing to do.
