oil on canvas
I suppose it was only a matter of time. I had ventured out to do a series of nocturne paintings a few years ago. It was summer and I painted hay stacks in the moonlight. Easier said than done. In the warm weather all kinds of creatures come out to play--some unwelcome. Recently, one of my students, Dora Keogh, a very accomplished plein air artist, went out in the bitter evening cold and rendered some magnificent night paintings, which inspired me to 'weather ' the elements and re-visit the mysterious nuances of night.
