Moonlight Mud Pie-to me, this painting contains dark, rich, earthly tones as well as a lighter component. I walked past the painting several times, and that name just kept hitting me. I liked the sound of it. I like the romance of moonlight and the kid in me just thought of making mud pies at night. It’s one of those strange names that had both meaning and a whimsical nature about it. It is meant to lift your spirits.
