Notes: This painting is one of a series I’ve been doing depicting various views of Mt. Tamalpais. I initially did the painting without the Moon. It sat on my painting desk for months. I’d look at it and think, “Something’s missing.” Then I remembered the woodblock print “Autumn Moon” by Hiroshige. The next question was, where to place the Moon? I decided to do this looking at Mt. Tam from the southeast looking northwest – a view many in the Bay Area would see.
Painting the Moon to get it exactly how I saw it took intense concentrated minutes, especially doing this free hand.
But I’m happy with the results. This is now one of my favorite paintings.
I know it will find a good home.
