We as people obsessed with the Moon and the night sky. Why wouldn’t we be though? It’s our own personal satellite. The Moon is gorgeous in every shape – whether a big glowing ball in the night sky or a silver crescent of delicate, shining light. We delight in the moon’s reflection across a lake or the ocean… Or use the Moon’s glow to cloak our nighttime adventures when the city lights hide in the far distance. We cuddle up underneath it with a glass of wine and our loved ones, letting our hands float above our heads so our fingers can trace  constellations in the sky. The Moon lies affectionately in the background for most of our memories. All of these reasons explain why Moon paintings are so popular in the Painting with a Twist studios. As a result, we can’t get enough Moon paintings, can you? 

“Aspen Moon”

Aspen Moon

This is a new addition of Moon art to our library. It was inspired by two other paintings in the art library called “Graffiti Aspens” and “Copper Moonrise.” There’s something about those flicks of metallic copper against that warm blue that really make this painting magical. It was painted by an artist at Painting with a Twist Colorado Springs, CO – Downtown. Customers interested in “Aspen Moon”can find the event here.
