Night Visitor, Regan Lee, acrylic on masonite, approximately 40" x 24"
Earlier today, when I posted this, I wrote that the image was over exposed a bit. Thanks to Insteller Housewife, who tweaked the above image, it looks better and closer to the actual image. (The original is below.)
As I wrote on my blog Saucer Sightings, this painting represents something that, while not exactly literally encountered, was encountered on some level nontheless:
This is a painting I did several years ago. At that time, I was trying to paint images of beings/visitors from my childhood. The ones I tried to do of the "aliens" that floated me out the door always ended up like stick figures, with inverted triangle/oval outlines for the face, but no features. I realized the other day I've made many paintings and drawings of figures, usually female forms, with these inverted triangle/oval faces, always featureless. I seem to place them alone in a room by a window revealing a night sky.
The painting shown here is a little underexposed, but it's the only image I have right now; the painting is big and heavy (painted on a large thick piece of Masonite) and packed away somewhere. At the time, I just started painting it; I remember feeling compelled and it just all came out very quickly; this large "Night Visitor" and at the time, the full title was "Night Visitor on Sherbourne Street" (even though the name was actually Sherbourne Drive but I thought Street sounded better.) That was the house I lived in in Los Angeles between the ages of six to about fourteen, and the house where the fuzzy puppet wolves and beings that floated me out the door came.
