“This painting shows my brother as an infant, asleep in a car seat. The car seat is precarious at best, but my brother is peacefully napping, unaware of any danger.”
The objective in my night scenes is to emphasize the mystery of night by having a large dark silhouette. While painting this dark area, a shape of a dog appeared in the shadows and I decided to “go with it”. I didn’t want the dog to be alone at night, so added the figure to complete the story.
