Night Follows Day by jeighdeigh Night Follows Day by jeighdeigh
Pen, ink, watercolor, acrylics on Fabriano Artistico 140 lb cold-press watercolor paper. About 17.7 x 12 inches. After doing "Day Follows Night," I had to do "Night Follows Day," being a compulsive seeker of symmetry.

This piece has got way too many Favorites for me to thank them all individually. So, to all who have favorited this piece, Thank you!

Sorry I've taken so long to reply ... busybusybusy ... I just like to take Big Things .. NIght, Day, Nature, Music ... and so on .. and imagine them as beings, spirits, deities, like the ancients did. Often women -- goddesses. And I like to imagine them as playing. So Night and Day here are at play, a never-ending game in which Night follows Day, and tries to catch the Sun, and can never quite manage it. 

I hope that makes things somewhat clearer.. Thank you for your kind words about my work, and for your question.

Thanks! Someone else mentioned that animation, some months back, and I had a look on Youtube. Fun!

Definitely. Unfortunately, most of the Youtube videos are not original. However, seeing as I go to a private college that focuses only on Animation, Game Design, and Digital Audio, they have a vast extensive library of animations.

Ahh .. you're lucky. Animation is magic. Did you ever see a spoof of Disney's "Fantasia" called "Allegro Non Troppo," I think? From back in the 1970s. It might seem pretty crude now, but I thought it was pretty fun at the time.
