Day number One

... is always the best. I have been thinking about this painting for the last couple weeks, mulling over the concept, thinking about color, envisioning imagery. And then, while I was down in California, I had a break through and knew it was time to start painting.

Last night we drove along the coast,
The moon was full and dewy
and I found my tree.
She looked so prosperous, she was surrounded by so much new growth
Where before, the rock had been cold.
In the water I found the colors I had been searching for
but did not understand
The most brilliant buff coupled with a rich blue-black
One flowing into the other.
Last night the moon taught me how to paint
Watching her full reflection slithering
across black night waves.

where before, the rock had been cold indeed.

but new growth, here we are.

(despite this ammmaazzinng blue, i was a BIT distracted by the bat painting in the background. it makes me gasp every time).
