Night Moves

Original Oil, 24x36. This past spring I visited the National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum. I was so inspired by the paintings of American who came before me, in particular, Frederic Remington. I knew I wanted to try a moon light painting and Zebras would be the perfect subject. I don't have any reference for Zebras under moonlight. My photography skills have not reached that level! I only have memories and, of course, the actual moon. It was interesting to see what moonlight really does to color and trying to portray it in an artistic experiment. It was a great challenge and I hope to do more.

I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
