In short, I did 3 paintings today because I had nothing else I wanted to do. I wanted to try something slightly different for each of them.

First picture is actually copied from a picture I had on my phone of someone else’s painting. I just really liked the massive moon and wanted to do one similar to it.

Second painting was of a long exposure photograph of fireflies taken in Japan. This one was definitely the most challenging of the three and I’m the least pleased with how it came out. But I’m told art is a journey and even the missteps are important lessons learned, so I’m throwing it up here regardless.

Third is a twist on something more familiar to me. A pathway in a forest, with a silhouette at the end, with the leaves sponged on. Except I decided to try to use wrong colours only. The other title for this one is probably “Ghost Forest” or similar. “Negative Image”. I dunno. I kind of liked the idea though, so it gets to be here.

I couldn’t think of a thought/ quote for this one, so I’ve gone for one by one of my favourite authors.

“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds that the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”

Terry Pratchett
