Naomi’s night scene technique has been written up in several art magazines and books including her own Variations in Watercolor published by North Light Publishers in 1981 (now out of print). International Artist and American Artist magazines are among those who featured her concept of depicting the mystery of night. “Mr. Henry’s Barn” was finished in March of 2014.
