Mysterious and peaceful at the same time. Now that's a hard combination to paint! So very beautiful!

Thanks for the reference Chuck. The painting is beautifully serene, indeed. Wonderful detail.
Very "moon-lighty". You've pretty well captured the whole moonlight thing. Another artist who did very well with that is a little-known French artist who lived at the turn of the 19th-20th century named Pierre Puvis de Chevannes, who came up with a very elegant print (in 1898) of "St. Genevievre Watches over the Sleeping Village". The original title is in French. (I inhereted an original copy.) It shows St. Genevievre illuminated by moon-light and oil-lamp light from an open door watching over a tile-roofed town. The image is surrounded by a border of oak-leaves. It is gorgeous. You might want to look it up on-line. Chuck
