In Busy Night Out a place is shown where people are arriving for a night out. My goal is for you to define the stories about where these families and solo explorers are going and what they might do.  I'd love to hear your stories.

Varnished watercolor paintings are protected from the elements, so no glazing is used with this painting.  I think you'll find varnished paintings are more approachable and enticing.

Here are additional nighttime paintings by April:

By the Old Mill reveals a perfect place to fish in the quiet of an old abandoned building. I always enjoy seeing places that have started to decay and collapse. I think I find them fascinating because their history is revealed. This building challenged me in countless ways with so many different materials (brick, reflections on glass, rusted metal, tree brambles and vines, water reflection, and the undergrowth of the distant woods.) Although I loved figuring out how to portray these textures it is the story of the place and the lone fisherman that drew me to paint it.

There’s a house not far from where I live that comes alive in the summer as an old Wisteria that nearly encases the front porch blooms. It’s a magnificent sight that takes my breath away.  Several times I pulled to the side of the road so I could take photographs from a variety of angles.  I’ve struggled with how to do it justice, so in this 10” X 10” painting on Ampersand™  Aquabord™  I decide just to paint one small corner of the porch so I could share these beautiful blooms. Some day I’ll be brave and take a much larger view, but for now I’m delighted with Graceful Draping and hope you love it too.
