Polka Dots and Moonbeams

This painting is called "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" after the 1950s song by the same name.

Many people mistake this for a sunset, but it is actually the full moon rising over a lakeside town.  I love how the street lights glow like polka dots and the moonbeam dances on the water.

I painted this in the summer of 2007.  It is oil, 9 x 12 inches.

It reminds me of childhood summers on Kezar Lake in Lovell, Maine.
