An owl on a perch eyes a plate-full of stars. The moon spits more stars around the placemat. Who could possibly be coming to dine? Titled, "Midnight Supper," I created this image inspired by spending nights sleeping outside under a waxing or waning moon, listening to owls hoot.

I developed this style in the mid 1990's and popularized it in the home design world with my "Cristina Acosta" signature line of ceramic tile and licensed products. I wrote and illustrated, Paint Happy!, ©2002, 2004 published by North Light Books. Paint Happy, by Cristina Acosta (me) demonstrates a variety of art instructions and concepts with this series of images. This style was my dominant art style from 1994-2006.
