Happy Birthday Again Mr. Trim!

Click to Enlarge

Sunday, August 26th... Mike Trim turns 62 years old! Happy Birthday Mike, and many happy returns. To celebrate, here's an image from a disc Mike just sent me a week or so ago. I don't know anything about it except that it moves me. Nocturnal landscapes are usually rarely seen outside of horror genre paperback covers, but I like this one a lot. Nothing about it seems menacing, despite the full moon looming over the countryside. Indeed, I find the pastoral night comforting, and alluring. I'd like to look into those illuminated windows and see what's going on in the house... maybe there's a family gathering or perhaps it's just a routine evening for the inhabitants.
Either way, there's something about this painting that draws me in.
And you thought he only knew how to draw spaceships.
Have a great day and eat lots of cake, amigo!
