Moon Glow, Moonlite Pines daily painting by Everglades Artist JoAnn Sanborn

Moonlight Pines
16x20
acrylic on canvas

A few days ago the full moon was was unnaturally bright in the morning sky over the Everglades. It was early, long before the sun had begun to brighten eastern horizon, yet the moon glowed big and round and cream, still high in the sky. Three planets added their light to the scene. What a beautiful sight!

The moon doesn't have an interior light. How does it get that radiant, glowing-from-within look? It’s a wonder and a gift of nature. Don't give me the facts, a sight like this is enough to please me all day long! Well, that, and maybe hearing a grandchild’s voice.

Jo-Ann, I think I can hear crickets and frogs. The mauve-ness of the moonlight on the palms is just beautiful. You really captured that night time glow on the palm tops.
Full of mystery and allure.

Just what every painter wants to achieve, some mystery and allure! The critters were definately chirping and croaking. Such a wonderfully peaceful noise. Thanks, Bonnie!
