- This Northeastern Night Scene Painting, "Moonlight
Over Hay Bales," was created during the First Annual Ithaca
Festival Paint Off, a gathering 30 of Ithaca's finest visual
artists into a huge space on the third floor of the CSMA building
in downtown Ithaca, amidst a cocktail party, loud 1977 music,
emceed by the WHCU morning news team, in which all artists were
given 60 minutes to create their masterpiece, all to celebrate
the 30th Anniversary of the Ithaca Festival (May 31 - June 3,
2007); one hour to complete and frame a painting. So here is
my "masterpiece! This artwork received a Paint Off Award
for "Most Enchanted."
- I wish I could be in a paint off every week,
I painted night scenes with a fever for a solid month afterwards.
This painting was done prior to night scenes, 188, 189, 190.
