The full moon in January is called the Wolf Moon. I painted this winter landscape of a moon rising not knowing that this year’s Wolf Moon is happening today, on my birthday!

I documented each stage of this painting for posting on Instagram, and when I was finished it inspired me to make this very short video:

The moon rising here from behind the coast mountains along Howe Sound has been spectacular this week. I got this photo of the waxing full moon from my house on Tuesday. Yesterday I tried to capture it just after it had risen and got the second shot.


  1. Happy Birthday Andrea! What a wonderful painting and so perfectly timed. Your photos are beautiful. I’m afraid we’re hemmed in by trees and houses to see the moon like that.
