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!
