"Moonset Over Medusa Lagoon"

©2008 D.M. Le Bris
SOLD

During my three-month stay in French Polynesia,
I was sailing aboard a commercial freighter
one evening from Tahiti to a smaller island.
Because there were no passenger cabins on the ship,
I slept on deck with the natives.
I spent a sleepless night but was rewarded
early the next morning by
a magnificent and remarkable moonset.
Like a mirror, the smooth sea reflected the moon
and early morning colors.
This painting represents the magic of that moment.

Acrylic on archival gesso-board/set on wood

Ohhh Danielle! I think this is one of my favorites! Of course I love the colors and the runs, but I also am very attracted to the way you were able to get the feeling of a new, warm day. It feels like you are on the deck of a ship to be sure! I really, really love this one a lot!

As always very beautiful work! It will not make it until December!

Oh Danielle, this sounds like one of those memories that last a lifetime and you captured it in exquisite colors!! I can almost 'feel' that memory just by looking at this painting, it's breathtaking!!

Danielle, I haven't yet commented on this wonderful painting. You have an amazing way of playing with hundred colours and being able to visualize and then paint your memories!:)
Have a wonderful weekend
