    I have been painting night scenes for a long time, especially near where I live. This painting representing one of those. I have painted this particular spot from different angles more than a dozen times as it is one of my favorite places to revisit. It is two main roads and a side road intersecting, all coming together right before the city limits of the next town. I really love the loneliness of the street lamp and how well lit the scene is against the backdrop of dark and distant city lights. Perhaps there is much to be said for my choice of this subject as a favorite. If so, besides a hypothesis or two I am unaware of the real reasons at the moment. I just know I love the place.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
