The Colors of the Night
"Paintings of the night have long been a wonderful source of mystery and of magic. They have been a staple of my art interests for more than 20 years. I first heard the term "the color of the night" eleven years ago when driving in a remote area of Utah with two artist friends. A quick turn off the highway onto a dirt road let us into a remote area away from all man-made light. As we exited the SUV, my artist friends started talking about "the color of the night". We stayed and studied the "color" in its purest form for perhaps 20 minutes. It was transformational." Tim Newton
