"One bird can work magic in a lonely place, especially if it is a nighthawk. Late night, humming streetlights and clicking traffic signals; no one about but a nighthawk, sending out its signal as it swoops around the moth-cluttered lamps. I had fun painting color studies for this piece, piling my equipment on a corner trash container and trying to stay out of my own shadow under a streetlight."
