Time for bed after painting this fun nocturne

It is so wonderful being awake and painting late at night. No one stops by selling me services, no cars are honking and even the dogs dream. Blissful silence.

The Fishing Boat Returns, oil on panel, 11” x 14”

This painting just got accepted into Harbor Gallery & Gifts in Ventura Harbor Village. It will be hung on September 27th.

The painting is 11 x 14” and is oil on panel. It’s wonderfully gushy and swirly. .

Nocturne’s are really my thing now they are just so yummy.

A nocturne was first a musical term. Now, it is also a painting term. I am part owl, so it works for me.

I painted this while a couple was Pokemon hunting and we visited for 20 minutes. We had a nice chat. Then I did another version in the studio. Now I am off to bed so I can look fabulous for my acrylic demo today at 2 pm. Thanks for stopping by.

I will post more when I choose the perfect frame to compliment this piece.

Lisa Mahony is an American contemporary fine artist who loves painting scenes of California in oil, gouache and acrylic. She shows her original artwork in galleries in Ventura and in September in San Marino, California at The Old Mill. Lisa's natural language is painting. Her earliest memories are of drawing and creating a storyline in order to paint. It is the easiest way for her to communicate all the beauty she sees in the world. Painting en plein air (on location, usually with friends) is a great way to meet people and get better together. I paint and sketch daily and I also enjoy painting challenges.
