Blue Moon Rising



This painting was done on a recycled canvas from the Habitat Restore. It was originally an impressionistic painting with shades of orange and white. It was 3′ x 3′ and  had a sandy texture with raised fingerlike ridges running across it. I decided to do the blue moon, cover the texture with trees, and use the thick ridges as foreground silhouetted trees. I was very happy with the result and so was the person who purchased it.

Blue Moon

Full moon rising over the trees

Lighting up the woodland below

Reflecting my sadness now that I am not with you

Shadows linger in both mind and forest

Spectors of all that remains hidden

Casting a blue glow on my world

Highlighting all that once was bright

Warmed by the sun’s Love

Now only shadows and darkness

Blue moon why do you look so bright

As though nothing ever happened

Don’t you know your light brings me no joy

Some say you are made of green cheese

But I believe it is blue


Painting; Dwight L. Roth
