“The birds we see in the dead of night.” New painting.

The birds we see in the dead of night.  Oil on oak panel.  24 x 48 inches.  Based on a succession of falcons I witnessed swooping across Interstate 65, somewhere outside of Indianapolis, around 3 am.  My headlights caught 5 or 6 of them and it was a rare event, as they normally fly during the day. – JM

The Birds We See in the Dead of Night.

Previous paintings

I recently traveled back in time, via an external hard drive, and found forgotten caches of old work (in the form of digital images).  These 3 paintings are Eur’s and the first 2 were completed before we met.  She used thickener to build surfaces onto the canvas so that you could run your hand over the finished pieces and they felt like topographical maps.  – JM
