Twilight Serenade

This is a new acrylic and oil painting on canvas of a skyscape with a large flock of Starlings engaged in a murmuration in the distance. Thousands of these birds gather into flocks called murmurations and perform amazing aerial acrobatics, moving in unison, synchronously and gracefully. I wanted to try and capture the graceful rhythm and patterns of the birds that emerge as the group begins to tumble, dive and dance as a single body of thousands. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

"Sunset." Acrylic and oil on canvas painting

A new painting of a sunset obscured by the last cloud formations of the evening. Sun rays escape as the horizon looms near. Cheers. -JH
