Celestial Light Nocturne Paintings

Moonlit Nocturne
© Karen F. Rose
oil on canvas
I have long been fascinated by painting "the mystery of the night".
There are several nocturne paintings in my exhibit, 
Karen F. Rose, The View From the Easel 
painting a poetic vision in oil and pastel. 
which is at the Melrose Bay Art Gallery until Feb 24, 2013.
Above the nocturne painting Celestial Light are these words from a poem.
Celestial Light
Karen F. Rose
pastel on board
There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
To earth and every common sight
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and freshness of a dream.
                       William Wordsworth.

Hope this painting gives you that sense of wonder.
Sweet Dreams
