Over the Moon!

Hello everyone! Sorry I've been so m.i.a lately, we've been traveling a lot this summer and I've hardly had time to do much of anything really! But I thought I would share something I completed earlier this summer for a local event, the Keuka Lake Palettes put on by the Keuka Lake Association. Local artists were selected from the area, including yours truly, to paint a giant 5' tall palette with the scene of their choice to be displayed in various locations around Keuka Lake for the summer. Mine was selected to be displayed on a giant easel in the Hammondsport Library and so, fittingly, I went with a children's theme which is entitled "Over the Moon!" This is of course a photo I took before they took it away for display. Someone from the Association actually called me just the other day to say that it's been a big hit with the little ones who have been coming down to the library with family members specifically to get their pictures taken with their faces in the moon! Anyway, thought I'd share!

Such Fun Gina! I can just see those smiling little faces in that hole. That is why we do this. It's the kids! What a rewarding thing for you to witness. You did a great job on the painting. I just love it.

Gina, this is gorgeous! I love the idea, and your interpretation is priceless. The moon is in just the right spot. I can just imagine how much the children enjoyed having their picture taken within this masterpiece.
