Desert Dusk. ©2014 Lisa McShane. Oil on Linen. 6"x12"
This is one of a small series of desert nocturnes. These are images that I have seen countless times on long drives and road trips in the west: a silhouette of hills, vibrant sky, the lights of something that slips quickly by.

I've always been interested in those glimpses of other lives, especially the quick images you see at dusk. Dusk is a time people transition from work to home, turn on lights and settle in. To me these quick glimpses seem like a view into another universe.
