Gary, my friend and uncle of these three children, remarked recently that so many of my paintings have the moon in them. I thought my moon painting phase was well and truly over, but when I was working on this painting something seemed missing, and I couldn’t resist painting a bright full moon glowing behind the flax plants. I worked from three separate photos of the children to create this portrait.
