October Moon by Scott Ruthven
Oil 6 x 6
 
I absolutely love painting the moon! I was on my way to the store when I saw this beauty coming up over the horizon and just had to capture it. It's a small 6"x6" painting, done completely with palette knife. When you buy this painting, it comes to you ready to hang! It it framed It is signed front and back It is varnished for decades of protection A beautiful, one-of-a-kind hand-crafted heirloom for your home. And, your satisfaction is guaranteed...if you don't love it, we can swap it for another or I'll refund your purchase price. I also offer easy lay-a-way...flexible payments up to 6 months and no interest! Just let me know what would work for your budget!

Biography
My vision is to create more joy in our world by crafting beautiful paintings and teaching others to do the same.
 
Join me!
 
I paint the things and places I love, always striving to capture fleeting moments of beauty.  My paintings are a conversation between me and my subject.  If you are attracted to one of my paintings, there is a shared connection and you are able to participate in that conversation.  It's like a remnant of familiarity and understanding that we share.  This is pure magic and is really exciting to me!
