Hunter's Moon

I awoke early one morning to see the full Hunter's moon peeking through the trees just as it was setting before dawn. That magical sight inspired this painting, with the last of the autumn leaves and the birds gathering for the start of the day all against the backdrop of a pale sky. That moment before sunrise seemed an expansive one, as the color of the landscape begins to deepen while the sky grows lighter. It was this expansion of the start of day that I wanted to express with this painting.
