Summer Nocturne, 6x6 Inches, Oil Painting

$100 & $10 S&H

  This is a town I used to live in.  Every year there's a carnival that comes to town and sets up across the peninsula that is the town.  From high on a hill you can see all the lights, and the wonderful turquoise lights (my favorite) of the ferris wheel, and its reflection in the shallow part of the beach.  I love  it.  I could gaze for hours at those lights!
Did you have beautiful weather this weekend?  We did - and we enjoyed every minute of it!

We are hanging the Girls Just Wanna Paint show this week at the Duxbury Library, stop by if you can.  our Opening isn't for another couple of weeks - I'll keep you posted.  I'd love to introduce you to my GJWP friends!  We also have two new members, Pam Copeman and Jody Regan, and we look forward to painting and hanging with them!


  1. Il n'est pas simple de peindre une toile "nocturne"... Le challenge est parfaitement bien réussi.
    Gros bisous

  2. Beautiful and alluring nocturne, inviting the viewer down from the hill.
    And, looking forward to GJWP challenges and adventures! Thanks.

  3. A beautiful night scene, Kelly. I've never been to a carnival on the water, but I sure remember the excitement of the carnival from when I was young.

  4. I love how loose and juicy this is. Did you use a black toned board for this? Fun!

  5. Wow!! Love this painting! Such wonderful darkness with those gorgeous lights shining through! Love everything about this one- you hit it out of the park Kelley!!

  6. so loose and free...I love it. the ferris wheel really tells the story...great reflections.

  7. Night paintings are hard - the glowing lights on this came out perfect. What town is this?

    1. It's Hull, sweetie. And a BEAR to photograph! When the camera let me capture the darks, the lights were toned down. :( It looks better IRL. Thank you!

  8. Beautiful and the reflections are perfectly painted. Love the ferris wheel.

  9. The lights are so beautiful and the painting so serene.

  10. Lovely painting, love the reflections!
