Day's End

Day's End, L. Daniel, 9 x 12

Yesterday eve I headed out for and end of day painting on the edge of town. The late afternoon light is always the most beautiful, casting everything in a wonderful warm wash of gold. However, at this time of year, the light on the grasses is just unbearable. As I applied the final strokes it was almost too dark to see, but I was done anyway. It was good.

Hi Laurel,

I love how you create a mood the viewer can walk right into. Such talent. I am always in awe.

The sweep of the purple vegetation up the bank lead the eye in so well. Wonderfully strong, but harmonious colors, too.
