Sunset with a Full Moon

I saw a lovely sunset with a full moon rising as we returned from a day trip to Canada for birdwatching... As my husband drove and the light was fading, I managed to paint the feeling of the scene somewhere near Mt Vernon. Obviously, our gray northwest doesn't look this colorful, just call it artistic license!


  1. Very nice. Did you do this while riding in the car? That's pretty good!

  2. Yes, I actually was balancing my tiny paintbox & sketchbook & trying to paint fast while the light was fading!!
