Summer Night

Monhegan Moonrise, oil on linen, 36 x 24, 2009

Illustration Friday is running a them that gets my heart pumping: midsummer night! How I long to be visiting the far northern reaches of Scandinavia one midsummer's day eve! Till then, Maine is about as north as I can get. This is the moon rising over the tip of Monhegan Island.

very beautiful indeed! I love moonrise paintings! There's something so majestic about a full moon hoovering above the ocean, gracing the ocean's surface with its reflection. thanks for sharing! :)

Beautiful rich colouring, with a restful, yet somehow eerie and mysterious effect.
