Hi, Celeste,
Nice! This a bit spooky scene could be a children picture book illustration!
Cheers, Sadami

Good atmosphere!

BRAVO!
PRECIOSO NOCTURNO!

Es un maravilloso contraste de colores, que le dan la intensidad precisa.

ABRAZOS.
Y FELICITACIONES, CELESTE.

This reminds me of a Tim Burton movie set. Loads of quiet goin' on here.

Great small, but when I blew it up - such excitement! I like the wavy sky and the varied foreground when set against the high contrast house. Such suspense.. (I shouldn't have looked at this right before bedtime...oooooooh)

Am I allowed to say that, I'm not sure about this one?

Plenty of contrast/drama/atmosphere ...but not really you.

I hear the crickets now. This is wonderful. I love night paintings and yours makes me want to do another one.

I know others will not see this the way I do, but there is something so strong in the cross shape with the light..."I am the Way, the Truth, and the Light..." I think it is beautiful, Celeste!

Spooky, no, mysterious, yes. I like it. It could be an illustration for a kid's book--or a Stephen King. The last few paintings are different for you. It's interesting to see the different ideas.

Such a cool, Tim Burton kind of painting. Love the streetlight.

I think night paintings are very difficult-all those shades of dark blue, purple, til you just can't see anything at all. I like the way you captured the gradual diminishment of light from the street light to the edge of the house.

storm brewing. I like it

I like what you did with it, though I kind of liked the light coming up the hill on the left side in the first one too.
