Night Lights


"Night Lights"____36 x 36 oil on linen___for Cowgirl Up!__Wickenburg, AZ, March 26-28, 2010

Here is one of the big paintings I have been working on for the upcoming western art show called Cowgirl Up! in Wickenburg, Arizona. It was hard to photograph...I do not take good shots of the big ones, and there's no telling how it will look on your monitor!

If you follow my work, this one might look familiar to you! I combined a couple of my favorite themes to create this painting. I have painted this scene in the daytime...and I have recently painted this sky several times, after studies I painted in Colorado last summer.

Beautiful night scene. The subtle light on the trees and roofs is lovely. Also, the shadows are very nice. Good painting!

Looks great on my monitor, Virginia. A lovely, mood-filled painting.

Very nice - love the way you captured the evening colors =) How fun - I haven't been to Wickenburg in years even though I don't live that far from it =p
