“Star Light, Star Bright” 24×30 Oil

“Sleep, sleep beauty bright.  Dreaming in the joys of night.”  William Blake

This painting is an original design that was created for my daughter’s nursery for her child.   My daughter’s request was simple “I want a tree with an elephant and a bunny looking at the stars.  And I want it whimsical.”  With that direction I started this very large painting that evolved as time went on and the essential elements took shape.    The challenge was to make a very dark evening scene into something with light, warmth and the magic that would capture the imagination of a child.
