Yes, I added more layers to this painting. Now it is done - except for a decision on its orientation. No matter how it is turned I think the painting's sensibilities are the same and conveys a message of organic ancient-ness (how's that for a can't-find-the-right-words description this early morning?). Right now my leanings are towards #2, I like the 'cradle' effect...but that could change. Any thoughts out there, anyone?

Last week I was asked to participate in a painting demonstration during a gallery reception. I started this that night. This morning I woke up with images flying through my head (kind of like sugarplums dancing but a bit less merry) so I grabbed a cup of coffee, squeezed out some paint and began layering. This might be done...or not...but for now it's going to stay on the easel so it can be contemplated and considered.

Luna Moth

I like the night just before dawn approaches. There is something about this time that seems a bit magical, a bit unearthly....a promise of things to come, the mystery of the unknown and the anticipation of possibilities.

Painted with pastels yesterday and today..yea! This will be my submission for the 'Night' theme and will hang at the Wallkill River School hallway gallery...since I am now...drum roll please...a represented artist there.

Happy New Year to all of you.
