Summer Night Illume
"This painting began as a rough idea for a floor mural. A really simple purple swirl with of van-gogh-esque brushstrokes, taking inspiration from tangled' lanterns, Van Gogh's starry night sky painting and the center of sunflowers. After an incredibly productive work day I got to come back to it to play a little and made a quick painting to refresh myself and this little night scene is what came out. I find these are some of my favorite painting times because I am so eager and ready to finally sit down and paint freely without any work obligations, and what comes out is un-inhibited expression."
