Joel Griffith boils down the experience of painting landscapes at night in his sleepy hometown of Tivoli to two words: "Skunks and drunks." After dark, the only passers-by are usually creatures of the night: inebriated college students and four-legged nocturnal mammals.For over a decade, Griffith has been documenting local scenes on canvas in all seasons, day and night.
