Fabulous, right? I love the subject matter in this painting, the large (very cool!) moon, the stunning trees with a life of their own, the moonlight on the water. I want to be right there, perhaps sitting on that big rock, absorbing the silence, watching for a fish to jump.
Nocturne was painted by Nathaniel Meyer, a Portland, ME based artist with quite an eye. I ran across his work via the Elizabeth Moss Gallery website. Beautiful paintings, so full of color and life! Nathaniel has a style all his own and it’s fabulous. I urge you to take a peek. These are paintings that tell stories – oh, the stories I could tell just by looking at them!
“Nocturne” is included in the “Aestival: Sun Drawing Water” Exhibit at the Elizabeth Moss Gallery in Falmouth, Maine – this exhibit runs through April 3, 2021. If you’re in the area… don’t miss it!
