Artcroft Day 17

Today we had snow flurries on and off for most of the day.

I stayed in my studio, and worked. I finished 2 small oil pastel paintings, and started two large oil paintings.

Around dinner time, when Robert and Maureen came home, the clouds began to clear, and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset, followed by the rising of a big full moon.

Tonight was the lunar eclipse. While painting in my studio, I could watch the moon gradually change from a full moon, to a crescent moon, and then eclipse. I expected it to have disappeared, but it actually had a eerie reddish glow. The stars were all shining, and it was a great experience….awesome!

  1. We tried to see the eclipse here in Florida. Two hours before the time for the eclipse, it was a beautiful full moon. An hour later a batch of clouds moved and blocked the moon completely. We’ve seen one before and it is very impressive.

  2. We got to see it too! How exciting. Great photo.
