Moon #1
2010

Acrylic, emulsion, varnish on canvas.

The moon has featured frequently in my paintings and drawings. It seems to me to be a shining gift to remind us how strange life is. Familiar yet mysterious, absurd yet beautiful, subtly influential, important but taken for granted, benign yet intense, constant yet ever changing.

No one painting ever seems enough to portray the moon. This one is quite a kitsch rendering. The glow of the moon was enhanced by the use of gloss varnish.
