She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
She is the Night Sky
Though my mind was dark with plight
I seek, to find my guiding light
To clear my head, to remember why
For peace she brings
She is the night sky

Alternatively: Starry Jane (working title). Inspired by the wonderful painting that was Starry Night, by Vincent Van Gogh. I did not initially plan to go this route. My plan for the bust was a blue toned study, with lots of brush strokes. My sketch started to flow, and I started to depart, and Starry Jane entered my mind. With a suggestion on my sketch from a friend, swirls entered and this is where we went. I tried to capture the two most prominent features of the painting, the Moon and the Cypress. It was a wonderful exercise on a pure creative high. I hope you enjoy it.

I have always been a night owl. If not for my love of birds, I doubt I’d ever get up at a reasonable hours. In the past left entirely to my own devices, such as during my research, my productive hours were 10pm-3am. Made 7am meetings with my advisor tough. The call of the night is always there, and brings me peace and clarity.

      Thank you Alfonso,  I can’t really take credit for the idea though, all I can do is pay homage.
