Under The Long Night’s Moon 24″x30″ Abstract Painting

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.

The moon can signify wisdom, intuition, creativity and spiritual connection. I am inspired by the idea that when it reminds us to rely on our intuition, it takes us on the path to realizing our true potential.

To capture the feel of the brilliant moonlight reflecting off of the snow-covered city, I built up layers of paint with gold leaf to give the piece depth and luminosity.

I created this abstract painting using archival-grade paint, gold leaf, and natural non-toxic solvent on luxuriously thick, inch and a half deep gallery wrapped canvas. The edges are painted, so the piece is ready to hang unframed.
