This is the result of an online class I'm taking by Wyanne Thompson. I'm having a ball learning some really great techniques.
This little painting comes from real life inspiration. (Love it when that happens!) We were at the lake late one night out on the boat stargazing. The stars performed and we were excited to see the big dipper, and the north star among others. In a quiet relaxing moment we spotted a crazy star we figured to be a satellite. We watched as it moved in an erratic crazy fashion. I swear we thought it was a million miles in the sky but just as we were really getting into the moment, a firefly immerged in it's place. Right in front of our noses. Then as quickly as we realized what it was, it flew away. We had a great laugh! Trickery from the stars... a little joke from the heavens.
