This image was originally taken with a digital camera in the evening while walking down to the beach
in Avalon, New Jersey. I loved the face that I saw in the moon. I never expected the photo to come out well, but since it did, I decided to make an oil painting on canvas of it.
It gives me peace to look at it again. This is the companion piece in a series. The other piece is called
"Moon Face II" and is a full seascape. Enjoy!
