Moon Rise

Oil on panel, Image: 24"h x 20"w, framed: 31"h x 27"w, Item No. 16659,

Hands cupped symbolically suggesting that the moon rise exists in her face.  A backdrop of black and silver leaf further suggest the dark of night and the silver glow of the moon against all that it touches.  A serious expression lies beneath the theater of the model's guise.  Brad Overton's interpretation of la Catrina Calavera is strikingly successful in this rare small gem of a portrait painting.
