Lunar Eclipse

6" x 4" original watercolor

Today's painting is simply an unplanned inspiration.
I had my next painting ready in my sketch book.
But at 5am this morning when I stepped outside for
my bike ride I was surprised and mesmerized to see
the Lunar Eclipse. What a blessing! I just stood there
and watched it change and glow. Its beauty was
indescribable. When I came back from my ride I decided
I had to paint what I witnessed. It may be a little off beat
for me but I captured what I saw. This photo does not do
it justice, you can't see the top glow of the moon but
it is in the painting.
