Night Painting

My daughter's 16th birthday is tomorrow but we promised to take her shopping for her birthday TODAY....We did the shopping, decorated the house, picked up things for her celebration, then went to dinner and celebrated her this wasn't a day I could get out to paint plein air.  To compensate....I had a study that I did in the workshop last week that wasn't anything special.    It was on the 2nd day of the workshop and it was the second study that I did before lunch.  I was a little tired by then and hot so it wasn't anything special.   I brought the original home, trying to figure out what to do with it.... After the party, I came into my studio, looked at the original and thought, ooooo, that would make a good night painting.  I propped it up on my indoor easel and went to town on it....Now that I think about it, I should have done a "before" and "after" photo.  Oh well, too late now.  Here's the night painting.
