The peaceful quiet of the the night, with a full moon and shimmering stars. That was what I saw during my trip last summer at Sand Wash Basin. That feeling is something that I have wanted to express for a long time. Nocturne painting is a challenge and something new for me. I have worked on several nocturnes, and this is the only one that fully shows the moon. The low key beauty is something that is expressed in this painting. Movement and peace.
