Road Home

Took a trip over to the coast today, just a "Sunday Drive", through the foothills. I love the foothills, vineyards interspersed with old farms, as well as lots of Valley Oaks.

On the drive home I came around a curve and this is the moon that I saw. I knew it was getting full ( mainly because of other bloggers mentioning it), but it has been rather foggy in the evenings here the past few days and I hadn't seen it yet. I did tonight...

Wow! I think I know where this is (or somewhere like it) and you've captured it beautifully. The painting really does make the viewer feel like they've come around a bend and there's the moon! You did a nice job of painting a scene with evening colors. It was so foggy here that it wasn't at all visible--the only way we knew it was a full moon was from the calendar (and the way I was feeling!)

Dreamy and nostalgia-inducing, Tami. It makes me think of drives through France when I was a child and summer drives through Leelanau County, Michigan, when my girls were small.
