Making Waves Under The Moon

Morning moonsets are just as moving as evening moonrises. An unusually fog-less morning offered up this exceptional view from Rincon.

Fun Under the Full Moon

 The scene: Good friends, beautiful warm evening, and a gorgeous full moon. Thanks to Bill, we were an organized group painting the Hunter's Moon as it rose over Montecito.

29 days 12 hours 44 minutes: Cupcake

There is so much to love about the moon, her beauty and magic never fail to inspire me. I patiently await the 29 days 12 hours 44 minutes between each lunar month. This Tuesday, October 9, I get to paint with some fellow lunar-loons (or shall I call us lunatics) and paint the rising full moon. Thank you Bill Hull for organizing this lunadventure!

Bill and his wife, Nancy, hosted a get together for us painters at his home over the weekend. He Martha-Stuart-ed the event by serving "Nocturne Painting Cupcakes". I sincerely hope he brings the leftovers on Tuesday night. I love the moon for it beauty and magic, but I especially love her frosted atop a cupcake.
