Starlight Companion

I have always liked to "place" the moon in behind the delicate branching of trees. There is a beautiful silhouetting which takes place. In this painting, the moon is quite prominent. I often like to "weight" my paintings on either the left or right. And, as I do so, it becomes necessary to balance the paintings in some way. I have placed a small glistening star above the landscape to the right. To further "compliment" the moon, I have added a symmetric series of starlight rays. I enjoy this scene very much, as it casts a feeling of stillness and unity in the two celestial members. The distances between the two are indeed vast, as they are to us. But, as vast as they are there seems to be a closeness between them. For this reason, it seems appropriate to title this painting "Starlight Companion."
