Park Avenue III

1.93 Park Avenue III. I wonder if I use too much color in these night scenes. I always set out thinking that I'm going to create a monochromatic blue painting when I start a night scene. In the end, I can't resist mixing in dull sunset colors on the stone. This is how I remember these scenes for some reason. I remember sitting, watching the sun set and the stars appear; remembering the colors of the sunset while the rising full moon relieves the shadows that the scene disappeared into as the sun set. I guess this is the reason I paint pictures instead of just recording them with a camera; I can show what I remember when a photograph doesn't.
