Night Field


Another in a series of the baseball fields in Sierra Madre, right next to my house. To keep it fresh, this an angle from inside another field. My other versions were just in front of this foreground. I also tired and different color scheme and much thinner application on of paint. I think the underling theme is boarding on sentimentally, but I hope I can keep it interesting and a little moody, but beautiful without pandering or exactly repeating.0il on wood, about 16x20.

Wow, The reds in this one are so cool. Next to the bird one, I think this is my favorite so far. It's got a kind of looming feel to it.

"hauning" was supposed to be: "haunting".

December 1985 was a very hot year in Australia.
The state of Victoria (where I'm from) was ravaged by massive bush fires.
The combination of long term drought and the bushfires caused a massive dust storm one early evening.
This picture reminds me of that day.
Cheers.

I managed to contain myself.
It was mostly dust - no flames near my place.

I love the intense light and color. This perspective really gives the feeling of being alone, watching from a distance.
