These eerie nighttime nature paintings are a clear reflection of the artist's unique imagination.

The paintings were created by artist Andy Kehoe and it is clear that he has a preoccupation with nighttime forest scenes. The artist's work has become increasingly sophisticated over time and looks like a beautiful, dark rendition of creatures and subjects from children's books. Each of the paintings has at least one animal hybrid, with a dark nighttime backdrop and illuminated lights coming from the sky. The most beautiful of his paintings is the one in which the artist recreates a close-up version of the moon, a large orb that swirls with multi-colored hues.

These nature paintings capture the imagination with both fear and inspiration in a way that is difficult to achieve for most artists.
