Art: Tahiti Moon

This 8x10 acrylic is another experiment in the Cezanne method. Besides the unlikely tree color, we have the moon shining straight down in a sort of 'lunar noon'. The background has vertical streaks to suggest motion; it might be a waterfall, approaching rain, or gathering mist. A razor is used to pick twig shapes out of the wet paint along the foreground shadows. This is definitely a place where you might stumble across a fairy ring. What does it suggest to you?
