It was raining buckets today, and I haven't finished setting up my new still life station...so I decided to paint something from memory. I guess I've painted enough lamps and people in silhouette to feel confident just painting willy-nilly until this image surfaced. It's a first pass, I may take it further or leave it. It's always interesting to look at things you've painted late at night the next day.
I had a cat in the scene, but the cuteness of it made me eradicate it. Sorry cat, let's just imagine you're there, somewhere, in the dark.
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Late Night Reader, oil on 8x8 canvas panel
