Contemporary Moonlight Night Paintings, "The Moon and You", by Contemporary Colorado Artist Laura Reilly

"The Moon and You"
A unique collection inspired by moonlight, starshine 
and dreaming winter nights.

Sketches, memories, inspirations - I love the season of darkness and starlit skies!

I am working from gathered mementos of winter nights I have known and loved, drawn and remembered - gathered over many winter seasons.

Working from my sketches allows me to focus on only the most essential elements, distilling the experience down - 

down to compelling paintings -mysteriously elegant and profound statements of moonlight, starglow and inner secrets.   Come and share these starry moonlit nights - your comments are welcome!

Contemporary Autumn Landscape Painting of Water Reflections, "Of Autumn and the Sky" by Colorado Landscape Artist Laura Reilly

"Of Autumn and the Sky"
original acrylic on canvas, 30" x 30" x 1.5"

I love this painting!  It reminds me of the perfect autumn day in the Colorado mountains I love so much - hiking, playing, sitting by a clear lake - just enjoying being there.

I am now teaching acrylic painting, for beginners and more advanced - contact me to schedule a workshop or class for your group!
