Karen Witt used a headlamp to finish her painting of the full moon. Several artists painted the full moon from the deck of the Student Center on Paul Smith’s College campus last Friday night.

A full moon — and a “super moon” at that — was more than the 100 artists at the Publisher’s Invitational Paint Out 3.0 could resist.

Even before the event began, participants were buzzing about the chance to paint a full moon nocturne. In the days preceding the night of the full moon, the artists poked their heads outside at various times in the night to plot out the moon’s course and contemplate where they would set up on Friday. Some had special equipment for night painting, some used what artificial light was already available. Some howled at the moon.
