A Summer Evening


A Summer Evening - oil 5 x 6
Sold
Last evening I was looking out the window at the long twilight, safe in my air conditioned envelope. It seemed so quiet and still. Then I went outside to take a closer look, and what a racket! Bird song punctuated the steady hum of insects, crickets chirped, the cows in the next field chimed in and the whole landscape was alive with the neon trails of fireflies.

Summer Evening is a stunning painting. I can feel the warm summer evening. Can't wait to see a bigger version of the study.

I love that cooler green strip in the distance Deborah, a great example of our discussion about color temperature accents. Brava!!

Do you know Susan Dauphinee's work? She has a lovely dark luminous work too.

Love,
Linda

Thank you Sheila and Don. This one was a challenge but very fun to do.

Hi Linda. Yes, I get more and more drawn to these temperature changes and noticing how very subtle shifts can create real impact. Thanks for stopping by!
