Autumn twilight

This is my latest painting and I’m not sure if it’s finished. Another day or two will tell. Dusk has been spectacular here in southeastern PA. The light changes quickly at the end of the day now, but just before it vanishes completely we get an alizarin/cadmium orange glow behind the tops of the trees. Juxtaposed next to the olive green, the colors sing. 


Twilight, oil on canvas panel 12″x12″ 2009.


The Group of Seven influenced my palette and this painting of a Jack Pine by Tom Thomson is a favorite. He had no fear of color.
