Tis the season for ANGELS…unusually mild & gloomy outside my window. A little happy indulgence inside my studio.

A very mild December morning. Unusual opportunity for me to go out with my sketchbook + charcoal. 

pines & sky
Charcoal with a hint of pastel is all I needed for these quick impressions. Always seeking the subliminal essence of the landscape.

Last week's full moon, known as the mourning moon appeared in all its spherical glory. It's the last full moon before Winter Solstice. It's pure magic to be able to catch the moon sets before 7AM on the western horizon. At the same time, the sun rises from the east, on the other side of my studio. The sky was very clear, so I was able to capture both the sunrise & moon set.

full moon, 6:30AM

moon setting 6:45AM
