Hudson Nocturne


This is a night-time painting I did at the site of the old Brass Anchor restaurant which burned down last year. The marina was relatively empty, although I eliminated all the boats except the one up on supports on the gravel berme which forms the mouth of the harbor. The moonlight and the single boat emphasized the loneliness of the scene which was what most impressed me about the place.

This reminds me of Caspar David Friedrich and those other moving moonlight painters who I believe are also German. At any rate, a powerful work, great work.
