MOON LAKE


This week's Paint Party Friday submission. 
Another WIP "Moon Night " that I am trying to emulate from an old magazine picture.
I had a terrible time with painting the lake, still not fussy over it.
 I used wood board for my substrate , inks and acrylics and I'm  thinking that maybe I would like to make this into a mixed media art piece incorporating various elements including wax, will see.
So far this makes the #4 work in progress for me : ) 





Oh, and here is a little bit of Opera for you to enjoy. A youtube video by Cristian Faur taken from the film "FARINELLI " The story of celebrated Italian Castrato singer of the 18th century and one of the greatest singers in the history of opera, Carlo Maria Michelangelo Nicola Broschi.
If you would like to see the film (English subtitles), I have seen quite a few on youtube. I'll have to watch it later on my own ; no one here, I'm afraid likes Opera, too bad ( ;

 I listened to this piece this morning while painting "Moon Lake" : ) Really does keep me focused and at ease, especially when the lake was giving me some issues. Enjoy!


Until Later,
Annabelle

Your moon lake exudes a deep mysterious atmosphere. I love the idea of using it as a basis for a project incorporating wax!

So soft and etherial! I love the blues and texture you've created - really beautiful! AND I love those pictures of your new kitty getting ready for the olympics! SO cute! xo

Oh, this is gorgeous! It has such a mysterious magical feel to it, as if everything is waiting for something to happen ...

Gorgeous work in progress...and yes I enjoyed the lovely opera which is also not easily embraced in my home. Thankfully every other genre of music is!! I love the softness of this piece...it does have a magical mysterious feel to it!....what's next I wonder?
