This subject of the moon seems to be quite interesting. On the night of the Blood moon there was overcast in Texas . I was wanting to catch a view of it , they say it won't happen again till 2033. So here is a view the next night with a clear sky. I will say it is a super sized moon for sure. What do you think await your comments . Thanks for checking out my Blog.

Doug Carter Artist ,. "ABSTRACT ROSES " 7 X 5,.
Looking at a large grouping of flowers can be exciting and the many colors and light hitting different parts. I wasn't planing to paint a abstract image it is just how it turned out . Very happy with the results and the dance of color and flowers .

Doug Carter Artist,. 7 X 5 " Full "
This side of the painting seems calmer and softer and cooler in temp . So once again the combo of the two create the fire and ice theme I love so well.

I'm going to let the painting speak for itself. Love to hear what it says to you as well.
Doug Carter Artist, " Full View " 2 @ 7 X 5 ,.
Actually painted the view on the right first and it was quite mysterious . Curiously wanted to see the full view of the area and painted the other side to complete the picture. This is quite a picture by itself and as your going to see so are they separately.

If you look at the weather map and look at Texas you know its "Red Hot ". So trying to paint a feeling sometimes is easier than other times. I think I nailed it with this one even thought the sun is setting its still fighting all the way down with the heat. Give me your thought and feedback love to hear from you.

" Purple Vale " I see the effect of light trying to come through the vale of the trees creating a combination of the warmth and the coolness of the the shade. Breaking through to the banks of the other side of the lake. What a creative feeling of mystery and peace. I love the expression on this painting and the mood it portrays..

Not only the sky but the fields are layer upon layer and going on for what seems like miles. That's what inspired me to name it so.

Something fun and very different that's what I wanted when painting this lake scene. Nocturnal with just enough light to keep the flame going . As you can tell still having name issues and yet this one fit somewhat well.

How do you name a painting that does it service. When the subject is beyond our ability to comprehend .
I have no idea how your able to paint something so massive on a small canvas and still do it justice.
I am pleased how this turned out however I need help naming it.
