Moon Light was a difficult painting to create. It is my neighbor's house across the street and was painted in my studio. I did the initial drawing with some umber paint diluted with turpentine and then established my lights and darks with the same. The difficult part was having to look at the scene at night in my studio with the lights off, and then painting from memory the first thing in the morning. It took me several weeks to complete. I was inspired to paint it because I love the work of Charles Rollo Peters, 1862-1928, an important California painter.
