Mountains and the Moon

Mountains and the Moon, acrylic on canvas by Anthony Neilson 

40″ x 30″   102 cm x 76 cm  

Originally this began as a painting of Howse Peak but the geometry and the contrast kept pushing me further into abstraction and it lost most of it’s topographical references as I kept painting. The end result was more of a study in abstract form and the glow of moonlight on the mountains than a portrait of any specific place.

The image above shows the painting on a standard height, 8′ wall to give you perspective on the size. My paintings are all acrylic on canvas with a 1.5″ “gallery” profile frame. All of the paintings are sold without decorative frames and can easily be displayed without a frame or by adding one to suit your own taste. The exposed 1.5″ edge is left as canvas and the staples are not visible. In my opinion they look fine like that and actually makes it look authentic!
