"The Same Moon" and Longborough Festival Opera

I am delighted to find out that the Longborough Festival Opera located in Longborough, Morton-in-Marsh Gloucestershire,UK, has used my painting, "The Same Moon" for their programme and brochure cover......L.O.F. is a charitable organization contributing to the education of students in opera and other disciplines..

It is also pretty cool that I stopped in London on the way to see my girl, Ann , who I was thinking about when I painted this picture....and she will be stopping in London on her way home from Uganda in May!....
Speaking of the same moon........here is another nocturne I am working on in the studio.......it's 15x30 oil on stretched canvas.......the image that I took has Canadian Geese in the foreground. So far I haven't been able to make them fit into this painting .......They will probably end up in another piece because I kinda like this one the way it is.....

I tagged you too, but that doesn't mean you need to post twice as many dark secrets, just twice as dark.
The brochure looks great. I was in Moreton-in-Marsh last fall!
