Night Painting @ Fish Lake

We took a family trip to Fish Lake this past weekend and while there I did this painting,

Fish Lake Nocturne. oil on linen panel. 5" x 7". 2009.
$100 USD (frame included)

It was fun to paint a painting in the dark since I've never tried it before. It was freezing and windy at the time, so I had to paint this as fast as I could. I used a headlamp to see and have my hands free--it was interesting trying to see color in what appeared to be almost entirely black. I'd like to try painting at night again, but preferably on a warm night.

Case, I love it! Beautiful. I can't wait to see this in person. I especially love the moon. It totally just pops. Muy bueno.

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com. As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!

I found your painting online and I loved it! I've used it to accompany a story on my blog, I hope that's all right!
