Spring Equinox moon setting

8.5"x11" - watercolor, gouache, pastel on paper
Early two days ago in the morning I awoke out of a deep sleep without an alarm. Unusual, but timely to catch the last bit of the moon as it sunk behind the clouds and the Catskill mountains. I was witness to the Rousseau clouds that held the highlights making painterly outlines against the indigo universe. I had been wanting to capture this kind of moonlit sky for sometime. Finally I could see it with my eyes and not my mind's eye.
