Nocturne with Symbols and Drum by Theresa Oats

A friend set his drums up in his living room in front of an art deco armoire. The symbols
reflected in the mirror and the lamp reflecting on the polished mahogany were the inspiration
for this painting.
I painted on sight, alla prima with acrylic paints on a wood panel.


  1. Amazing. This is how to paint light.

  2. I am a long time admirer of your nocturnes, and this is a fine example in that tradition - beautiful!

  3. Great colors! The light and the paneling are such lovely warm hues!
