Original acrylic on canvas, 6" x 12", framed
A recent plein air painting, started on location and then finished in the studio.
I love the way the moon comes up on a frosty evening
- it cooled off fast when the sun started going down.

Contemporary Landscape Painting "Rising Moon, February" by Colorado Contemporary Artist Laura Reilly
Thursday, February 2, 2017
I've been longing to get outside for a little plein air painting,
and yesterday was too nice a day to pass up!
Up on Mesa Rd., there's a tiny little piece of Open Space,
a beautiful, dry wild landscape.
with gorgeous views of the Peak.
Even though it was only 35 degrees out, I was in the sun and layered up -
long underwear, painting shirt, fleece vest, fleece jacket - so I was toasty!
It's been a long time since I painted with gloves on though.
The thin magic gloves work well.
