Some of you may remember this painting as a work in progress I did ages ago. I had put it away because the ferris wheel was giving me fits! I guess I have been on a 'marsh' kick because my last two paintings at class have been marsh scenes. Marsha (my teacher) suggested I try to paint things that I don't usually paint...outside of my comfort zone...like a night scene. So I took this one out and finished it. It's from a photo I took several summers ago. It had just rained so the night sky was cloudy and the lights were reflecting off the puddles on the sand. That was a challenging scene to paint. (the ferris wheel is better but still bothering me) Oh and it's big for me at 18x24 so it looks much more imposing in real life!
