Starlit Hour . 24x36 . 2009

1. artificial lighting (regular interior lighting)
2. natural lighting (near a sunny window)
3. combined uv and artificial lighting
4. uv lighting only (with a black light)
5. no light (glow in the dark for hours!)

Ingredients: acrylic, phosphorescent pigments, varnish, water & light on canvas.

In my mind, this painting takes place in a night sky, or maybe even right before dawn. It's bright and colorful and on fire, because of course, that's what a star (like our sun) would look like up close. The heat and warmth are enveloping, seeming to actually light op the sky. Have you ever been outside in the dark and noticed how bright it can get?


This painting is 24x36 inches, on stretched canvas with a gallery wrapped (1.5 inch thick) edge and is ready to hang. The sides are painted black. Made with artist quality paints. Signed and varnished.

*High quality phosphorescent pigments make this painting glow in the dark for hours after the lights are turned off. It will probably still be glowing in the morning!
