Winter Moon

The other night as I was getting ready to head out in my car, I was struck by the beauty of the full moon shining down on the street. Of course I didn't have my camera, but my new cell phone has a 5 megapixel camera built-in, and I always have my phone! So I took it out and tried to capture a picture of the moon. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, so decided to try to turn it into a painting. I worked on this tonight but it's just a quicky - only about 30-40 minutes spent on it. The photo didn't have a lot of detail to work with so I was more than just some "blobs" in the photo to translate into the painting. :-)
