Night Study II: Broughton and Bull

This is the second in a series of night scenes I have been working on this year. Once again, I used a Savannah street for inspiration. I improvised some of the color palette in this work, and edited out pedestrians and automobiles to focus on the structures and the lighting effects.

I received another rejection this week, this time from the Visual Art Exchange's annual "SCOPE: The North Carolina Landscape" for my two entries. I haven't made the final cut in this show for three years, but I won't let that discourage me from continuing to work hard. Rejection is a major part of a visual artist's experience -- you just have to get used to it and move on.

"Night Study II: Broughton and Bull." Oil on stretched canvas, 9 x 12 inches. Completed January 2011.
