Moon Over The Wekiva

I just returned from a week of painting along the Wekiva River in Central Florida. Over twenty-four artists painted for a week in Wekiwa State Park and the Wekiva River. It is quite an amazing place to hike, relax and enjoy wildlife. We were fortunate to stay in cabins in the State Park and able to wake up to deer and other animals roaming around the park. The springs were serene in the cool mornings with the mist rising over the water. The trips down the river were bountiful with birds, turtles and a couple of alligators. One evening all the artists participated in a sunset paintout at Wekiva Island. As the sun goes down I created this painting of the moon rising over the Wekiva. The darkness of the evening is just as enjoyable as light of the day. Wouldn't you enjoy a canoe ride down this river?
