I woke early to catch the sunrise, setting up my easel and oil paints in almost full darkness. A crescent moon with one bright and one dimmer star (Venus and Regulus, I think?) hung over a pale horizon, reflected in the lake.

Oil on a Raymar linen canvas panel, 8 by 10 inches, ready for framing. Click here to see it in my Etsy store.


Here is a little map of the sky I looked up on after I got home, to figure out what I was seeing.
