Full Moon in Mexico


This painting was inspired by a book that was written by a friend. He had a house in a small village in Mexico and the book is part memoir and part fiction about a week that he spent there during the full moon.
I also spent some time in this "sleepy little fishing village" and his book brought back memories of what a magical place it is. My son went there recently with his girlfriend and he reported that it's still magical!

The painting is 30 x 30 inches and painted on a gallery wrapped canvas. I used acrylic paints and a silver glaze on the moon and a teeny bit of glitter in the water.
This painting is sold.

The book is called "The Hourglass" - you can order it on Amazon.
