Something unexpected happened at “Moon Lake” last week; It transmogrified into a strange, wild and secluded place.

I didn't intentionally paint “Moon Lake” this way, it just happened, accidentally. Somehow, the water, the trees and the sky took on a deeper more mysterious feel in the shadows of the night which grew older and darker as time ticked on, maybe it was just me painting in the dim light : )

I wish I had left it alone because I did like the original version but then again the new version is kind of beautiful too and I like it so I'm not too disappointed. I suppose this is what happens to someone who is a novice painter learning from their mistakes.
I am still debating on adding a small cottage along the shore to the right of the painting, not sure, will ponder on the thought for a while. I also need to add some light to the trees on the shore line and then I guess that's it…. : )

Sharing this week's painting with Paint Party Friday……Thanks Eva and Kristin for hosting!!!

Until later,
