Bishop Moonrise Owens Valley Sierra nocturne oil painting
9 x 12 inch oil painting
Near Bishop, California, Eastern Sierra
We were out by the Owens River, close to some seasonal ponds, when we saw the moon rise over the White Mountains.
I loved the beauty and serenity of the scene and this painting is the result. The pale light illuminated the sage and other native grasses and shrubs. Only the quiet gurgling of the river and nocturnal birds could be heard.
