The moon drifts over our little barn's corrugated roof. It seemed as if the trees were reaching out to catch it.

Hi Don,
You are such an amazing artist - able to take what seems everyday and through your art, cause us to sloooow down and take a look through fresh eyes. The blue of this sky, the beauty of form and shading of the tree, the moon visible in the light of day - all contrasted with the manmade roof - such a feeling of space and quiet. Thanks for drawing our attention to the bigger and wider scope of things in life.

Joanne, so kind of you to take the time to write such thoughtful and encouraging words. Thank you!

This one is real nice and simple Don. I mean that in a good way. Not too much to take away from that moon, but a nice contrast of man made and nature.

This is a pretty sharp piece, Don!

Don Gray said...

Thanks a lot, Frank. I appreciate hearing from you.

Don Gray said...

Jason, glad you came by, and thanks!

This painting almost becomes an abstract composition because it is cropped. Great angle, nice.......

Don Gray said...

Yes it does look pretty abstract, doesn't it Alvin, even though it is fairly accurate to what one sees. Thanks for stopping by.
