Nocturne, No. 1 - September, oil on panel

975.00

If you're of a certain age like I am, then you remember the (infamous?) V-8 vegetable juice TV commercials from years ago, in which a character suddenly had a revelation and then slapped his or her forehead and exclaimed, "I could have had a V-8!"

I had a similar epiphany recently. After years of kicking around the idea of starting a whole series of nighttime landscapes, I finally got the ball rolling with this piece. It's such an obvious bridge from many of my cityscapes that it's a wonder why I didn't get to this sooner....definitely a forehead smacking moment.

Regardless, I'm very pleased with this first piece in what will no doubt grow to be a lengthy series. I've always been fascinated by the jewel tones of night. It's possible to trace some of this infatuation back to my earliest visits to the Art Institute of Chicago, where they have a nice collection of Frederic Remington's artwork. A volume of his nighttime subjects, The Color of Night, is one of my favorite books in my art book collection because of the range and diversity of subjects he portrayed under cover of night.

I caught this composition along the edge of State College, Pennsylvania during an evening in late summer. And despite the revelation that this painting is, I'm sticking with my chocolate milk and am most definitely not consuming any V-8.
