Moon Over Telegraph Track

I walk along Telegraph Track a lot. The track runs across part of Little Woodcote Estate, and is a small slice of the country in suburbia.

Christmas Moon

Sometimes I walk the track at night, and the trees and the moon have been forming pictures in my mind for a few weeks now. Here’s an interpretation of those pictures, in the shape of an acrylic painting on canvas, 16″ x 12″.


I’ve really noticed how different this painting appears in a variety of lighting conditions. The photo above was taken outdoors in the daytime, this one was taken inside in the evening.

  1. I think it is fascinating how light shapes the work. We often appreciate an artists play with light in their paintings, so it is intriguing to have light work on a piece differently. Perhaps a metaphor for allowing situations, whether on the job or socially, to emerge or reveal themselves in different contexts, rather than attempt to mimic, manipulate or impose our own will or interpretation?
