Yesterday was Elmore's and my anniversary, and we're lucky that the Center for Southern Folklore downtown puts on a music festival to help us celebrate each year. One of things we most love to do together is go listen to live music, so it's a perfect way for us to celebrate. We went down in the late afternoon, had dinner with good friends we ran into (our best music-listening-to friends), and hung out all evening listening to various bands. We had a little time between two that we wanted to hear, so I tried a nocturne. Painting at night is a little tricky, since you have to find decent light to work by, and I'm not sure this really reads clearly as a night scene, but I was attracted by the string of lights and by the full crowd over at the Majestic's patio.
