"Harvest Moon" is a thick impasto painting in honour of today's moon which will be eclipsed just after sunset in North America, to make the 4th Tetrad of 2015. It was quite a challenge getting the moon face to just peak over the horizon like elmo over a fence. :)

A Rare Eclipse of a Supermoon
Total eclipses of Super Full Moons are rare. According to NASA, they have only occurred 5 times in the 1900s – in 1910, 1928, 1946, 1964 and 1982. After the September 27/ 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse, a Supermoon eclipse will not happen again for another 18 years, until October 8, 2033.
