Detail from Siesta days, Vendee moonrise 2 Detail from Siesta days, Vendee moonrise 2


With a full moon rising, here is the heat of a hot summer night painted partly because daytime temperatures were reaching 45C.

You will apperciate it was difficult to paint outdoors in day time so here is a fine study of a warm alluring full moon rising over the lakes, canals and forests of the Vendee made while the artist was staying at Notre Dame de Monts.
