Nightlife, 8x10 Abstract Oil on Canvas

It's rather freeing to paint an abstract occasionally, and just "let go." This one has a dark and mysterious tone, depicting the shadowy yet vibrant atmosphere of a city at night.

Our painting group, Pieces of 8, is off to the North Carolina mountains again this week. We can't let Cindy continue to have fun up there by herself. After what I call the Summer of My Discontent, this is a much-needed change to recharge my batteries. This has been quite a year, and I don't mean that in a good way, so I am looking forward to our annual art retreat.
