Blue Moon Over Mono Lake

Happy very belated New Year!! At long last I am returning to posting a Daily Painting. I hope all of you had a blessed and joyful holiday and a jubilant New Year.

After Christmas my family took our annual trip to Lake Tahoe to visit my husband's sister who lives at the south shore. Everyone goes skiing, while I cook and photograph and rest. I absolutely love it. I also especially love the snow, and the cold, and all the sweaters and scarves and jackets I get to wear. I am convinced that my affinity for the cold comes from having been born in Syracuse New York, and from having lived there for the first 4 years of my life. So here is the first of a few paintings based on photos I took during our drive up and back on Highway 395. This one is of the "Blue Moon" of December 29, just at moonrise as the highway climbs up and away from Mono Lake.
