Palmetto Moonshine

April 7th, 2014 by

Sometimes artists will repeat a painting, and this represents one of those times.  Russell’s earlier Palmetto Moonshine was simpler and more monotonal. It is also pictured in this gallery.  He took the opportunity to repeat the idea but this time he made both the moon and the background earth more photorealistic.  This is a small piece, only 8 by 10 inches.  It was painted for a small works show later this year and as such, is only for display purposes at this time.  As mentioned in the original Palmetto Moonshine, the idea came to Russell because there is a legal moonshine in South Carolina called ‘Palmetto Moonshine’, so this painting plays off the name.
