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.


Marbelized Table and new painting

This painting is listed on my Etsy site and is for sale framed. The frame is a recycled piece that I found at our wonderful local Habitat store. The painting is titled "After the Harvest".

The table is also a recycled piece and has a green marbelized top and the wonderful ornate legs and base are antiqued with a coordinating green glaze.
This piece is currently being shown at the PAF gallery in Siler City. The current show is by Chatham Artist Guild members, a preview of our annual studio tour. There will be an opening this Friday at the gallery from 6 to 9 PM [ September the 18th] in conjunction with the Third Friday Art Walk in Siler City.
