This whimsical painting is called “Runaway.”
I started with this rolling green landscape, and a full golden moon hanging in the sky above the hills. The sky is rich with hazy blue clouds and a spattering of twinkling stars.
To me, it looks like the tree, with its curved branches reaching, is calling out, beckoning towards the moon on its path through the sky.
After I painted that part, I sat back and looked at the painting, asking myself what else it needed. Suddenly, I envisioned this little person, sprinting down the hill towards the tree, his path lit by the big moon overhead. It had to be. I added him, and it transformed the image into something fun and exhilarating!
I like that he’s running toward the tree–if not his final destination, it will be a stop on his journey.
The painting wraps around all the edges.
Imagine the freedom of running through this glorious landscape into the bright starry night!
