Silhouette, 12"x24", Acrylic on Canvas, $800
This painting was inspired by the view on one of my trips south to visit my family.  It was late in the day and the last rays of the sun were lighting a group of barns up on a hillside.  I wanted to capture both the intensity of the light in the distance and the mystery in the selectively illuminated shapes in the landscape. 

Note:  The foreground in this painting is actually a deep green and the upper clouds a deep bluish-purple.  Cameras can't quite get the full range of values that we painters work with.  Combined with the data loss that goes with shrinking the image for the web, and some of the subtlety of the original is lost.

To purchase this painting, please go to my Daily Paintworks Gallery (icon is at right.)
