Night painting

Relle cypress swamp 08-14-16

This has been one of those weekends when I could hardly find the energy to get out of bed, much less actually do anything.  I did get a little motivation to paint this afternoon, so I got back to the challenge of painting a night scene.  I still have a lot to do before it’s ready to sign, but I’m pleased with the results so far.  Other than portraits, this is probably the biggest challenge I’ve taken on. Thanks again to Frank Relle photography for the inspiration. If you’re in New Orleans, please go check out his gallery on Royal St. and tell him I sent you. He probably won’t recognize the name, but if you tell him I’m working on a painting from his new series, he might. His work will leave you breathless.
