This piece is the only painting in the collection based on a reference photo I didn’t take. My dad took the photo on the way home one evening and I knew right away I would have to paint it.
The piece celebrates my love of the water and of nature, and the fact that I get that love from my parents. It also represents the gratitude I have to them for bringing me to the island and letting me live in their lakeside home.
It’s named for a Bruce Springsteen song that was made famous by Patti Smith which felt right for the moon rise depicted, because the night is beautiful, too.
This painting has been mounted in a locally-made custom wood frame crafted by local artisan Cameron Gray. The piece is fitted with hanging hardware and is ready to display in your home.
