Newer Work #68

I’ve long wanted to see the Aurorae, but cost and logistics have always prevented it – plus that pesky old unalterable – the cold!  Nevertheless I can be inspired by the photos that others post.  The tough one about painting the aurorae is that it’s light on blackness – something that can’t be easily done in watercolor, and the soft swirls can’t be done easily in acrylic.  So this is one of my most impressionistic skies.

If you love it – it’s small enough to ship easily, still gift sized and ready to go on the wall.   Others that I’ve posted recently were from a batch of matted pieces.
