La Luna

La Luna by George King
George King

"I set out to capture sunset illuminated, wooden crosses in the ancient Yaqui Indian cemetery near mission San Xavier del Bac, the 300-year-old White Dove of the Desert south of Tucson. As I set up my camera, an enormous, pale yellow Arizona Moon rose over the hills to the East. I advanced the film to capture this once-in-a-lifetime scene. No film. Alas, I was left only with an indelible mind-picture of the shining crosses, the mission and the rising moon. Of the many versions I have painted, this is where pastel is applied to coat of the paper and lighter features are achieved through use of erasers." - George
