Baja Moonlight

When the world seems to be going insane, I tend to retreat and find a modicum of sanity in creating more minimalistic works, such as this piece. I love the golden brown and blue colors, the contrast of light and dark, the way the ocean way in the back seems silvered by moonlight. All's right in this little world. Assuming, of course, you don't impale yourself on a spiky plant! ©Carol Leigh

Yes indeed, print this one BIG on canvas. A masterpiece! Intense colors, contrast and flow.

As artists, it is a comfort to know that we can create our own world and moment within a frame and/or canvas... We have the opportunity to see beyond and present what appeals to us.

A rose has its thorns... Cactus has its needles... Peace within chaos...

Great work Carol!

Ah, Stephan, you sweet-talkin' guy, you! Always a pleasure to have you here. Yes, we do have the ability to create our own world within a frame. May it be ever thus. --Carol Leigh
