Dusk on the River

(click on picture to purchase)

These next two paintings are from the same
location, painted at the two most interesting
moments of the day, light-wise. I never
ever get tired of painting the break of day;
it is always different, quiet, and full of
clean smells from the cool night air. Dusk,
on the other hand, seems to move too quickly,
as if in a hurry to wrap it all up for the day,
and causes me to struggle to keep up with
the fading light. There are treasures to be
found then, also, because the clouds change
rapidly as the heat of the day ceases to
fuel them and they put on their sunset clothes.
