Landscapes

as in all my motifs, share late afternoon light; it’s an obsession. It’s very theatrical, focusing the observer directly to the main actors. Looking at nature in the bright of day can sometimes be very mundane, but look at the same scene in the setting sun, and the vista is glorious. The long, dark shadows and bright, warm highlighted edges of objects turn the scene into a painting you want to view again and again. It gives a sense of peace and restfulness at the end of a dramatic day.
