When I first wrote about this – it was more like a short story or prose – I had fun writing but it was probably more about the writing and the evening than the art itself.

Digital Painting is a lot of fun for me. It didn’t start out that way – it was mostly frustrating – though I laughed a lot thinking – how could anyone ever learn to paint this way.

This particular painting attacks the sky with a fervor – the strokes are bold – intensity to match the evening though obviously beyond literal. The light shining through becomes that much more inviting as a result.

I have always been happy with this painting – it feels like it is something perhaps more unique to me – I left the white gap – because I liked it – swirled because it was fun and generally treated the canvas like I owned it.

I am not always able to paint this freely – particularly when there is a place or feeling I am trying to communicate.
