|Evening Song, Foothills|
Oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches $10400 framed
Saks Galleries, Denver
At the end of my day in the studio, I often walk out back and see tree patterns in the large meadows near the foothills. The sun has already set and the available light changes the look of everything. I have often wanted to paint a pure arrangement, just the basic elements of that view.

There is a bit of both here to keep things interesting, but my focus was create a simple landscape composition with aquas and blues. As the painting developed, the lighting became softer and I found myself just following along, enjoying the developing scene.
All of the sky and most of the blue hill in this finished work are from the first painting sessions and it was fascinating to observe how both areas seemed to take on a glow as the rest of the oil moved forward.
This is one of the softer, lower-intensity pieces I have ever done and I like the presence and calm it gives to the room.
It's like a whisper.
