I am getting ready to submit my entries into the Westport Arts Center Spring Solos Show. I wanted to put some things in that are a bit more atmospheric and am considering Moonshine for this show. I was inspired by one of my favorite artists, Terry Muira, for this painting. He did a study of cyprus trees and the colors he used were amazing. I wanted to capture a tranquil mood with the same palate. I’ve spent many an evening sitting out on a dock or floating in a boat in the middle of a lake, admiring the moon and the stars and the grand open sky. It always brings me peace and tranquility.
