People really seemed to like the nighttime paintings I did for my "Dreamgirls and Ukes" show.
All of these are oils on linen except for the one on the antique banjo, which is oil paint on the original hide head (varnished). The big tortoise is a new character... from Galapagos Islands. The "Nighttime Ditty" is a version of my "Snake Tamer's Ditty" of 2007. Please feel free to comment and I will answer any questions you might have.

Thanks janet, I think it's the blue color that makes it seem so.

And Daisy-
I like the tortoise, too.
Thanks very much for your comments. Maybe I will do something more with him in the future.
