Moonlight


Moonlight
12x16

What is it about the night sky that makes us feel in awe?  During the magic hours of night we adjust our eyes to the darkness and peer across the landscape at the silhouettes and shapes.  If there is a moon in the sky, our eyes are naturally riveted to that glowing orb.

No sight is more provocative of awe than is the night sky.
