Moonlight View is an original oil painting by Quata Cody. White fades to darker blues, the moon glowing through onto the calm waters of a salt marsh. The painting scene is framed by a rustic painted frame of whites and blues. This is painted and not an actual frame.

Quata likens this series of paintings to Tankas.'In many ways, the tanka resembles the sonnet, certainly in terms of the treatment of the subject. Like the sonnet, the tanka employs a turn, known as a pivotal image, which marks the transition from the examination of an image to the examination of the personal response. This turn is located within the third line, connecting the kami-no-ku, or upper poem, with the shimo-no-ku, or lower poem.' Reference:
