Evening on Walnut Street


What fun it was to paint historic Walnut Street with artists friends at night!  Heading over after a full day of painting and a wonderful 20 year celebration of the event, I feel in love with these lit buildings at night.  I can remember the days when it was difficult to find enough light in town to paint at night.  Now, there are multiple subjects all over town.  I never know how a nocturne painting really looks until I open my trunk the next day.  Daylight reveals what I can't see at night - and in this case, it was a happy surprise! Another must have thought the same thing, because this painting has a new home, too. And oh howI love the quiet solitude of nocturne painting.  Painting number 3766 in 3766 days. 


  1. Wonderful painting Tammie. Love the cozy feel to this evening work.
