Contemporary Abstract Landscape Painting "MOON WINDOW" by Contemporary Realism Artist Carol A. McIntyre

"Moon Window" was painted immediately after I painted "The Blue Beyond." I had been wanting to paint moonscapes for a long time and finally the idea caught up with me. Surprisingly, the first layer of this painting was various reds and this underpainting provides the glow. Most people would not expect reds and orange-reds to be the colors to use to set off the moon light, yet it does provide the depth. It is also interesting to see how these warm colors set the stage to rest of the painting. What are your reactions to the reds?

My “Windows into Your Imagination” series will be featured in the new Silver Street Fine Art Gallery opening Sat., June 25th in beautiful Lake City, CO, which is an old silver mining town. Gallery is open seasonally from June 25-September 24th. All featured paintings will be available for sale.
