This misprint had an alignment issue that made it all sky and no earth. I couldn’t resist painting in the very end of twilight in rich blue and fading violet. The moon is a special iridescent paint that looks white at some angles and lavender at others. The tree has some intriguing physical texture, painting over with soft-body acrylic paint, and its details were extended into a network of lacy growth.
There’s a few little birds in the sky as well, hidden mostly behind the mist of tiny dots that might be fireflies or snowflakes or even a light rain reflecting moonlight at the viewer.
Every part of this artwork got a touch of new life, from the waning gibbous moon to the color-washed streaks in the sky.
Above, you can see the way the paint shines, the moon going purple and the tree’s texture picking up the golden sunlight. Below, this piece is in a frame and happily showing itself off for you.

Another piece that shows my fascination with dancers! This one is also long lost to the mists of time, or possibly in that one box on that shelf I can’t actually get to right now. There was a local shop that made stained glass windows and would let me come raid the stuff that was broken for interesting pieces. The background is painted in pearlescent white on a thick shard of semi-opaque buff stained glass, and the foreground daubed in wetly with a fat brush and barely-mixed colours for a rough, abstract effect.
From what I recall this piece is about 3″x5″ or a little smaller, heavy in the hand.
