we are the stars

"we are the stars", what I'm naming the newest painting.  This picture is inspired by my usual muse of trees and an artist that makes things glow, Henning Kles.   I want to portray a feeling of night time and sparkles of light on water.  The figure was tonight's addition. It's ghostliness is deliberate, to be as a memory or moment, like the feeling of what's its like to dive into a pool of water.  You anticipate the feeling of the coldness and the change of environment, but it really is never as good as the feeling of the actual moment.   And when you've come out of the water, its only a memory of the feeling.
  
 This "memory" we have of feelings is what intrigues me!
