I have always been intrigued by nocturnal paintings, especially the western nocturnal paintings of artists like Frank Tenney Johnson. However, nocturnal wildlife paintings seem to be rare, and I have never seen a nocturnal painting showing mountain goats.
These two paintings show mountain goats traveling through extreme alpine country on a starlit night. While mountain goats do roam at night, hardly anyone gets to witness this. These two paintings give us a glimpse into a rarely seen world.
