Night Moves

Original Oil, 24x36. This past spring I visited the National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum. I was so inspired by the paintings of American who came before me, in particular, Frederic Remington. I knew I wanted to try a moon light painting and Zebras would be the perfect subject. I don't have any reference for Zebras under moonlight. My photography skills have not reached that level! I only have memories and, of course, the actual moon. It was interesting to see what moonlight really does to color and trying to portray it in an artistic experiment. It was a great challenge and I hope to do more.

Large and in Charge

Something a bit different. I wanted to put some expression in this piece with movement, color and brushwork. "Large and in Charge" 36x36 oil on linen
