Bright Winter Moon

Bright Winter Moon - oil on wood - 12 x 16
Hello there! It's great to be back online again. Our internet was 'knocked out' for 5 days while we experienced the effects of an ice storm that moved through our area a few days before Christmas... a very small sacrifice compared to the thousands of households that were without power (in Toronto) and still are.  It will be a memorable holiday season for many, memorably miserable for some.  I worked on this little painting last week, but was unable to post it after we lost our signal. I had first thought I would paint snow falling, but then decided the moon was more of the star(little celestial joke) in this added the cat as a bridge,  linking the house and the moon.  I got the idea from Miss Puss(my daughters cat) who was visiting us during the holidays.


  1. Wow! Wow!
    Sally! Outstanding! One of my favorites of my favorites of yours! I love this painting for so many varied and wonderful reasons! Bravo! Happy New Year!
    Both "Bright Winter Moon" and "December Market" are fabulous!
    Keep on painting!
    Hope weather improves and our Canadian friends get power soon!

  2. oh wowzie! it is always so lovely to receive your enthusiastic comments Michael! Thank you for being such a great art buddy. Happy new Year!! happy painting to you.

  3. Beautiful painting Sally. I love it. We lost our power for 3 1/2 days and we were lucky. I have a friend who lost it for 8. It did make Christmas a challenge, but the light and heat came on for Christmas, and we appreciated all of it so much.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    XOXOXO Barbara
