A Moonlit Journey, acrylic on canvas, 4" x 12", private collection. Journeys symbolized by boats in art have become such a cliche, although some of them do hit you seriously in the gut. But we're all on journeys--so what? This guy is enjoying his ride.
I was asleep at the wheel and varnished this one before I took the photo--so I apologize about the glare.
We were in Arizona awhile back and I saw a painting of a cactus (what else?) that had some subtle layers going on in the background which I loved. My attempt to use layers gave this pic a feeling of mountains or a bushy landscape in the background.
And I watched Ken Burns' Prohibition last week--I loved it! That's where the hat came from.
