Nightlight - 5x7

Pretty fond of this one, I think it looks better in person.  Something about these nocturnes make them very difficult to photograph. 

Also, we're currently at war with an evil colony of ants at our if anyone has amazing tips to get rid of them please share! 

Oil on panel, 5x7 inches


  1. It's beautiful! I love night time paintings. I'm in Santa Barbara and found your art on Etsy some time ago. I love your work!! So glad I can now follow your blog.

    We are constantly battling ants. I use Terro with varying degrees of success. And Raid spray. Not in the house, but I try to get the entry points once in a while. In the house the only thing that has worked is the Terro.

  2. a line of comet where they come in. Or if that's too messy I've had success with a line of antibacterial hand soap and/or hand sanitizer (in my classroom) across where they are coming in.

  3. Love it Sharon! I think it photographed well, looks really great.

  4. Thanks everyone!

    A combination of boiling water, vinegar, essential oils, baking soda, and persistence seems to have given us the upper hand in the ant battle! :)
