Moonrise by Scott Ruthven
8"x10" Oil on canvas board

Here's a plein air painting I did in the last 30 minutes of daylight.  It was only 9 degrees F but the light was so subtle and beautiful that I had to capture it.  The paint was so stiff I literally had to plow my size 10 flat in to paint and plaster it on.  This view is looking across a frozen lake at the moonrise.  Of course the photo wasn't able to depict the subtle color shifts.

Thanks for looking!


  1. LOVE this painting Scott! Exquisite in it's simplicity.

  2. What a serene painting. Looking forward to following your blog.Found you on Leslie Saeta's 30 days....doing the same but my paintings usually take a few days to complete so I am challenging myself.
