The Moonlit Silence, ©John O’Grady 2015

It does not require framing and is ready to hang.


The nights in my studio come early at this time of year and as it’s way up in the attic of an old 18c house, it affords a fabulous view across the rooftops of Vaison La Romaine and the night sky.

I was looking at the moon and thinking of its power and magical effect on the tides but also upon us as we look at it.

This was the starting point for this piece, a dreamscape where the viewer, in the silence of the solitary landscape, notices the gentle sigh of the waves moving in communion with the full moon.

I would love to hear what you think.

Best Wishes for 2015.
