Moonlight is nothing more than a reflection of the SOURCE of light...the sun. So, also is our warm greeting (illustrated by the light in the window)...nothing more than a reflection of the Giver of hospitality and acceptance....that's my interpretation of this painting.
This was painted specially for the Illumination show at The Open Doors Gallery in Austin. Opening reception is Friday night 7-9 pm. That's a football night but I will be there for a few minutes...come by for a "hello" and see some art produced on the theme, "Illumination". All the artists have created works, many 3-D works of sculpture and glass, and all have interpretations of the theme....
I painted this on a gallery wrap canvas and the moon itself is painted on the top panel of the canvas.
