It is always special to experience seeing the moonlight softly shining across some water. Playing with us, peaking in and out of the clouds, creates a desire to stay present with our experience, waiting to see what will be next. Sharing the experience with a friend helps us to bridge the gap between the times when too much or too little is asked of us. Yet, being able to share even a few moments of time like this we can feel freshly alive, aware, and present.
This original oil on panel 1648/1650 painting by Aert van der Neer is titled Moonlit Landscape with Bridge. Minimal digital image alterations have been made to renew and enhance image.
