The magical light of the December moon, or the Long Night’s Moon, inspired me to create a painting of the same name. The full Long Night’s Moon appears near the winter solstice, the darkest time of year. This contrast between light and darkness makes the glow of moonlight especially poignant.
I was intrigued by the December midwinter moon because the long arc of the moon’s path above the horizon makes it the most visible moon of the year. To capture the feel of the brilliant moonlight reflecting off of the snow-covered city, I built up layers of paint with a palette knife to give the piece depth and luminosity.
This original oil painting was created using only the highest quality professional grade oil paint and natural non-toxic solvent to produce an archival work of art. The 1.5 inch gallery wrapped edges are painted so that no framing is needed. It is ready to hang.
