From April 2020, for a year, I posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts. Some of these paintings are still available.
In 2014, after spending a year going out once a week in my quest to paint “The Creeks and Rivers of Silicon Valley”, I was just a little melancholy. So, I determined to paint some larger studio versions of my favorite pieces done on location the past year. Hence, a new series was born.
On this 340th day of posting a brief diversion from the virus news is another nocturne. I have been posting a few nocturnes of Silicon Valley, AKA Santa Clara Valley, painted from the hills above my home in San Jose. This might look familiar, as it is a studio piece of the plein air work I posted a few days ago.
