December 19, 2007 Before Darkness
I had to get up very early this morning in order to have time to complete a painting. I still have to teach a full day of school (since it is Wednesday) plus immediately after I am off to sunny California. But, of course, the blog must go on. This is the river; but this time it is early evening. You know that wonderful time of day day when the light is a greenish blue and darkness is enveloping everything. It is just a moment, no more. It was like this as I drove home last night. That light was the inspiration for this painting. As I painted I kept my recent mantra in my head, "less is more."
