Late Afternoon

"Late Afternoon"
5" x 5"
Oil on hardboard
Late in the afternoon when the wind begins to tuck herself in for the night, a calm settles on the serpentine river. Shadows run from the sun as she bids adieu to another day.  

This is a pretty small painting. It's on the smallest panel my art supply store stocks.  On the other hand, I've begun a large rose painting!  She may not be as pink as I thought, but she's large enough for me to paint with my beloved sponges. I'm enjoying a neurobiological high—getting "blissed out" over the process, as Robert Genn says.

Thank you for joining me here on the banks of this river today.
