A recent commission renewed my interest in a painting I did in Marfa Texas of the Night Lights.  I am experimenting with sizes, textures, colors and shape distortions.  I love the colors and have started three new canvases moving to larger pieces.  Going with Native American symbols and nature shapes leads to a virtual dance of night creatures.  More later, using layers, textures. . . The underpainting is mixed water media (acrylic, latex, inks, chalk) with the drawing superimposed and painted with acrylic and latex, sealed between layers (about 15) and sanded back to reveal pieces of each layer.  The final coat is cold wax burnished with polisher.
