A Dark Blue Night


"A Dark Blue Night" is painted on an 8x10" Canvas with Acrylic paint, in Landscape orientation.

The colors used in this painting include solid dark blue with dots of white and tinier dots of raspberry red and emerald green.

Mostly dark blue, with a sprinkling of white dots and tiny bits of deep raspberry red and emerald green, this abstract painting is evocative of looking down from the heights onto a scene of headlights at night. It has a peaceful, meditative feeling.

As I was painting "A Dark Blue Night," I was reminded of a line from a book I'd just been reading, likening the headlights to a woman's diamonds.

The story was about a woman who faced many economic and societal disadvantages, yet found a way to overcome, and even to enjoy new found luxuries. 

The diamonds were a symbol of her grace, ease after hardship, and ultimate triumph after the experience of excruciating scorn. In addition, the beauty of those diamonds represented the love bestowed upon her, as well as a rise in status.

You may feel the rewards of your own success as you gaze at this deep blue painting.
