Description

"Perigee"

24" x 24" x 1.5"

Inspired by the full moon in perigee in Southern California, June 23, 2013--that is, the full moon when it swings in its arc the closest it can come to the earth. The moon then appears largest and brightest to us here on earth--a "supermoon."

Psychologists tell us that what we hear influences the way we perceive what we are viewing at any given moment. In this painting, I take that insight seriously. My experience viewing the moon in perigee was imbued with the soft rustling of palm fronds in the evening breeze and the distant roar of traffic on the highway. A mockingbird was busy making his territory known, as well. All this I worked into this abstraction of the moon in perigee in Southern California, June 23, 2013.

Acrylic and molding paste on gallery-wrapped canvas with an acrylic satin varnish and built-in mounting bracket. The title is painted on the inch-and-a-half wide bottom edge of the canvas frame, where it can be viewed from below but doesn't interfere with the picture itself.

Gallery-wrapped canvases are not typically framed, so this painting is ready to hang. If you choose to frame it, I recommend a floater frame, which will not actually touch the painted sides of the painting.

Free shipping within the continental U.S. via UPS or FedEx ground. Crating and processing time is 1-2 days, and the painting will then be in transit up to 6 additional days, depending on your location. Expedited shipping is available at additional expense.
