Starlight & Nightime at Severn River

Day 2 of auto posting camping paintings while we are away camping. These paintings are from a trip to one of our favorite “local” haunts, Sundown National Park.

This one is oil on silver leaf, the texture created by the silver leaf is so interesting to paint on and by using glazes I retain a glow from within, from the silver. Unfortunately that doesn’t show up in the photos, I have never figured out how to photograph this technique well. If anyone has any tips for me I would be very grateful.

This is a pastel on paper of the same scene; it, like many of my unframed pastels, is hiding away in storage under my bed!


  1. Oh no!!!! It should not be hiding under your bed, it is too gorgeous. I love the way you have captured tose stars! Suzie. xxx

  2. Hello again! I have an award for you if you would like to come and get it! Suzie. xxx
