Three moons rise up from the horizon of an alien ocean into a cloudy purple sky. On the shore sits a large city, a testament to the ancient civilization that resides on the edge of the universe.
This painting rose up in my imagination after painting over an existing piece I was unhappy with. The color of the ocean was already mostly in place from the previous image. I painted white, then a purple gradation, over some of the details from the original picture. This created a series of shadow shapes under the new paint layer. I saw the current image in the shadows and just followed my imagination. This is the first time I have added structures to my landscape. I plan to experiment further as I create more new paintings.
“Moonrise on Neptune III” is an original acrylic painting measuring 12 x 24 inches on stretched canvas.
