Lazy Evening Flames

"Lazy Evening Flames"

Oil on hardboard
The colors waggled overhead like a fire too lazy to lick the underside of a log. They would peter out before igniting even the driest kindling. And you know, they did just that — flickered and extinguished themselves into night.  

I hadn't painted a sky in a while, so this colorful one was my choice.

In the humidity of the tropical dome at the conservatory were numerous varieties of fronds. The late afternoon light bounced around in that moist environment, revealing a spectrum of color. 

Number two in the series is similar, in that it is on a black canvas with metallic colors.  And once again, I took it this far and let it dry.  Tomorrow I will see what it's like to work on a dried piece and introducing new elements.

Thank you for taking a peek at my work.
