Super Full Moon Rise

"Super Full Moon Rise Over Fort Worth" (just started)   18" x 48"   Oil

Study for "Super Full Moon"   6" x 8"   Oil

On March 19 we witnessed a rare and beautiful sight as we watched the supermoon rise over Fort Worth.  The last full moon that was so big and close was in 1993, and the next one will occur in November of 2016.  Deb and I decided to view this event from the Amon Carter Museum and it turned out to be a perfect spot to capture the moon rising over the city.  I thought it would be fun to paint this in a panoramic format and have stretched a canvas and roughly sketched in the skyline.  I also painted a small study of the moon before beginning the larger painting.  Hopefully I'll show you the finished product at a later date.
