Artist Statement

Van Morrison’s song was the inspiration of the piece.

The intention was to capture the mood of the figure male cheerfully enticing his partner to dance him in the moon light. Just like the first two lines in the lyrics of the song.

‘Well, it’s a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes,’
