Hello Moon by Abby Braman

This piece was painted a few months ago — I didn’t have anything too specific in mind when I created this. I was listening to one of my favorite bands, Elliott Brood — a dark folk band, and the ambiance of the song just put images of seedy motels out west and dead bodies in the back of someone’s trunk in my head. Not that this piece is super ‘dark’ but I used a bit of that influence from that specific song I was listening to, and Hello Moon was the end result. I enjoy the feeling this piece gives me (and hopefully the viewer), an eerie, yet serene vibe. The kind of vibe that makes you think, “ this is awfully creepy, yet I’d like to walk around in this painting.” It was painted in water color paints on water color paper. My artwork tends to lean towards the dark, yet beautiful atmospheric side.

  1. i would like to walk around in this painting, can almost hear what it would sound like opening that door. Love the way you brought the moon out of white space. Wonderfully provocative image for “home sweet home”

  2. Heartache-beautiful, this reminds me of being young and unable to sleep on a camping holiday, and of going for a moonlit walk on my own. It’s a very vivid memory and the light’s just right.

    Great job and great description! I really like the feel of this painting. Watercolor really makes it!
