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)
