Nibblefest Art Contest: My Entry, 'MoonShadow'....

"MoonShadow",  3.5" x 8" acrylic painting on vellum that has been permanently mounted to a section of reclaimed wooden board.

The Nibblefest Art Contest began tonight!  I was able to get two entries completed for it, including this one that I blogged about this morning, my 'MoonShadow'.....


My auction description:


"....I very much enjoyed this month's Nibblfest theme.  Being as that I love to listen to music as I paint, the theme of "Moonlight' brought to mind all my many favourite songs that have the word 'moon' or 'moonlight' in their titles or lyrics.  One of those tunes has always been "Moon Shadow", by Cat Stevens.  I have many fond memories of my older siblings playing it at home when I was growing up.  With its simple, cheerful melody and optimistic lyrics, it's a song that stuck with me all these many years, and one that I often sang aloud to my own children...."

(For those unfamiliar with Nibblefest -- it is a friendly, monthly, themed art contest on Ebay that always begins of the first of every month, with all entries beginning with a starting bid of just .99 cents.  Fun times!)
