Pennsylvania Night Scene Painting

"Night Buggy"
(2nd & larger version)
24" x 34"
Oil on Panel
No. 246
In this Pennsylvania Night Scene Painting, "Night Buggy," an original oil on panel, I wanted to convey the feel of traveling at night by horse and buggy. I found inspiration from seeing how the Amish traveled, both at night and by day in central Pennsylvania. This is the second version of this subject matter in which I wanted to open up the landscape a bit to effect an openness of land depth and atmosphere which I felt was needed to represent a larger world even from an intimate if not delicate nocturnal way of traveling to, or maybe from, what a moon-lit night such as this might have to offer the imaginary destinations of mind.
