Title: “I Drive Alone” / Acrylic on canvas, by NH artist Denise Clark

One full moon  night in July I decided to paint en plein air.  This is the view outside my studio, looking south from my backyard.  For light while painting, I used a flashlight and the light of the moon.  It wasn’t easy, but it was fun.  I hope to do this again.

While I was painting, a single car drove past.  I began to wonder about the driver and why  he or she would be out driving at 2 AM  (perhaps the driver wondered what I was doing as well!)  My dog Jonny accompanied me, and I know he was definitely confused by what was going on!  Throughout the process, he happily hopped in and out of the studio while I worked, enjoying this change to his normal nightly routine.  The song title is from a lyric from a song by Them Crooked Vultures.  (Painted 2014)
