more shimmering lights

I'm just starting to finish up a group of paintings right now (I like to work on about 10 paintings simultaneously) and I will be posting them as they are finished.

Here are a few:

Vincent Van Gogh once said, "I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day."  I know what he meant when he said this and I agree 100%

A lot of my new paintings are night scenes, concentrating on the presence of light sources within the painting and the reflection of those lights on water.  I'm sort of revisiting and refining some of the same themes I worked with in older pieces such as the two below.
