Marsh at Dusk

Marsh at Dusk
12"x24", 2011
An original oil painting on hand-gessoed hardboard;
professionally framed; 2.5 inch wide antiqued gold frame; ready to hang.

On a winter afternoon there’s usually a fleeting time when the last glow of the sun passes on its way through the clouds into twilight across a seemingly endless horizon of the brown-tipped marshland grasses.

Each moment becomes a new painting, and one could wish that it would never end, as the colors transform the clouds and the sky takes on new shapes until there comes a time to say that the sun has finally set; and, so another day ends on the marshes.
