A friend of mine posted this lovely image as a photograph on FaceBook. When I saw it I knew I had to paint it! Even though I always think I don't want to walk Paco at night, as soon as I get out there, (if it's not below 20 degrees & windy) I feel like I'm floating. Paco likes to walk up a steep hill near my house and I feel like I am IN the stars, so close to the moon. It helps that at the top of the hill the street light is iffy - and it is very very dark, and velvety navy sky seems all around us.
I thought about going back into this and refining the grasses, and maybe I will.
So was I thrilled to get to pick the topic for Girls Just Wanna Paint this month? You bet - I already knew the painting I wanted to do! So I picked "Nocturne" as a topic, and HERE is a link to our responses.
