Back in April I looked out of the window one evening and saw a quite new moon on its slide down to the horizon.
There was a pale blue sky, deep enough to remind me of the vague warmness that the early spring day had possessed, yet icy enough to hint at the cool night to come.
The land below was already starting to look dark in the fading light, as were distant trees, scratching up at the sky.
Bobbles of blossom, full of their spring promise, fluttered in the still near bald hedgerows and trees as the evening breeze breathed through them.
That evening I felt inspired. Inspired by the light, the moon, the sky, the sunset, and most of all by the unfolding spring. Another beginning had begun.
And so I painted this painting, “April Early Moon Chases Set Sun”.
