From the Artist…

I have been struggling with creating nocturne collage paintings. A nocturne "describes a painting style that depicts scenes evocative of the night or subjects as they appear in a veil of light, in twilight, or in the absence of direct light." (Wikipedia) It has been a challenge to create an image that feels like the darkness of night. The Tall Grass is the closest I've come to being successful. The collage's dark color values emulate the last bits of daylight shining through the tall weeds.
