True green tones contrast with Payne’s gray and showcase the moon and street light sources in this night time composition. A lone child stands looking at the moon. To “cast beyond the moon” is a phrase that means to believe in unlikely possibilities, and the idea of being cast beyond the moon implies a complete removal or banishment from society. Combining these two meanings, this painting speaks to the high level of courage it takes to dream of a bright future when feeling vulnerable and rejected.
