Moonlight – Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas Panel – Painted 9/21/2008 – I saw a movie a month or more ago that prompted me to schedule this painting. In the movie the electrical power had failed and there was a full moon. It reflected off the actors faces much like this likeness. The play of lights and darks was moving. I hope this piece is too.
The subject in this painting is actually the father of a friend of mine from many years ago and has been gone for many years. I used an old black and white picture as my model. Your comments are welcomed.
