As we near the solstice and the daylight keeps shrinking i may find myself doing more of these nocturnes. It was fun to put one little dab of orange light in that bulb...i saved it for the very last stroke. Looking at it now, though, it barely shows. Our little camera is really having trouble picking up detail in some of these smaller paintings, so i may look into getting a scanner. If anyone has any suggestions i'd love to hear them.

I am using this blog as a catalyst, to inspire me to paint every day. There are forms, compositions and color juxtapositions everywhere i look, provided that i take the time to do so. So if you see that i haven't posted a painting in several days, leave me a comment deriding me for my laziness and lack of artistic conviction. I have no excuse not to put brush to canvas, regardless of the subject matter around me. I hope you enjoy the results.
