Night Fall, Port Hueneme July 22, 2012

This was one of two large paintings I did in 2005 for my first solo museum exhibition at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard. I painted it on location in a large field in Port Hueneme. Knowing the reputation of the nearby city of Oxnard, was like the city Cuidad Juarez, It was the only time I've set up on location, armed. Fortunately, because it was a Sunday night, there were very fiew people on the steets.

The steam from the recycling plant is seen billowing up in the sky, obscuring the moon.
