Story of "Song in the Night"
Introducing my new painting, inspired by a dream during a challenging time in my life. It brought me a sense of hope, remembering that nighttime turns into morning, eventually.
It reminded me of the many camping trips I've been on when I always seemed to hear creepy sounds in the night that caused me to shudder but then turned into a beautiful symphony of nature in the daylight.
"Song in the Dark" also holds a very precious moment for me. I was looking for a model to render for a young girl in the painting. So I choose my granddaughter who, at the age of six, is an amazingly talented singer. We had so much fun together; setting up lighting and having her sing out loud as I took photos. I hope the joy of that experience touches you. My joyful time with my granddaughter is woven into the painting as much as the paint that I applied.
"Song in the Night" was recently shown at the Herberger Theater in downtown Phoenix. It's now available for purchase. (Click on the photo for more information).
