Night Painting

Clear Night, 9 x 12

West Texas Moonrise, 9 x 12

I did this pair of night paintings recently from two photographs I had taken on a beautiful, clear night on the way to my hometown of Abilene. I finally felt ready to take them on, and once I did the first, found that I enjoyed working with the deep blue so much that I tackled the second one right away. They seem to be quiet landscapes, and in the craziness of day-to-day life, they appeal to me.
