"The Super Moon..."

...from a magic filled Arizona desert perspective.

"When I admire the wonder of a sunset
or the beauty of the moon,
my soul expands in worship of
the Creator."
~Mahatma Gandhi

Oh so beautiful! Thank you for creating this wonderful painting! I am a real lover of La Luna....and sadly, could not see her last night..we had a huge storm!
(But I knew she was there, hiding behind the clouds.) Desert views are always extraordinary - and you have captured this moment!

Hugs from San Francisco,

♥ Robin ♥

Wonderful, very 'you' drawing. In Virginia we had a clear bright night, but I would have loved to be in the dark desert to see it!

another beauty Margaret; what a great thought to have captured the super moon in your art. I did look out to the moon also; it was still there on an early morning walk today too. Always enjoy your fabulous, colourful art, and especially the cacti and flowers...

This is EXACTLY what I saw last night, sans cactus :)

My camera wasn't behaving so all I got were blurry shots, but I did see it in all it's fiery glory as it crested the land. Wowza!! Just like this painting ;)

This is a beauty. I am so sad that we didn't get to see the moon these past few days (nights). It has been so cloudy. Booo... Happy spring and HCM.

Oh I just love it! I used to live in the desert and I commented on Saturday night that I wished I had been there to see the super moon. My husband told me it probably looked the same there and I said, "nope. The moon always looks bigger and brighter in the desert." Thanks for sharing your lovely piece to remind me of the lovely desert moon. :-)

Did you have a clear sky that night? It must have been a beautiful sight. We had overcast skies and did not see the moon. Your painting is gorgeous!!!!Lise

Your orange moon is beautiful and so are the sparkly cacti. It reminds me of the moon in "Joe vs the Volcano"
