Description: This is a painting depicting the full moon rising to light up the night sky. The moon appears above a silhouetted line of trees in the foreground and a star-filled sky in the background.
This full moon painting does not require a frame as the painted image extends around the edges of the canvas. Hand-painted and signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard.
Full Moon Rising was inspired by the east Texas moon. My favorite time to take a walk is in the late evening before turning in for the night. I love looking up into the night sky and seeing the stars and the moon on a cloudless or almost cloudless night. I especially love the times when the moon shines so brightly it lights up the night so it looks almost like day! Just one of the many “bennies” of country living.
The Far Side of the Moon
FYI…Did you know the common belief the moon has a dark side is a myth? The truth is both sides of the Moon see the same amount of sunlight. The Moon rotates around on its axis about once every 27 days. This is approximately the same amount of time it takes to orbit the Earth, which means the same side is always facing the Earth. Astronomers call this phenomenon “synchronous rotation.” Only about 59% of the moon is ever visible to Earth throughout an entire orbit. The rest of the 41% — the part we call “dark” — is the part we never get to see from Earth. The “far side” of the Moon has only been seen by the human eye from a spacecraft.
